Founded in August 1755 our namesake, the Union Library, is the second oldest in Pennsylvania and the twelfth oldest in the United States. The Greek Revival style building you see pictured here was completed in 1850, eleven years prior to the start of the Civil War, and it is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Many of the original 59 books which were received from England the year after the Library's founding are still in its possession. The Union Library, under the direction of Mrs. Harriet Ehrsam, actively encourages and supports the area's cultural and social life and the members of the Union Library Civil War Round Table are proud of the contribution we make toward that endeavor.
