The Library is located in a recently constructed, state-of-the-art facility just outside of Montrose, the county seat of Susquehanna County, Pennsylvania.


A large collection of materials is available to the public, including both print and digital books (from the latest best-sellers to baby board books), DVDs and Blu-rays  (both instructional and entertaining), a large collection of magazines and their back issues, CD and digital audiobooks, and music CDs.


Computer access to electronic databases aid patrons to answer questions or research topics, and librarians are always available for help. High-speed Internet access, a scanner, Microsoft Office programs, and tutorials are all available.


The library sponsors a wide variety of programs. Babies can be enrolled in "Babies and Books" and receive a bag of information and gifts, including a free board book. Small children ages two and under enjoy baby laptime and toddler time, while children ages 3-5 enjoy pre-school Story Hour. Summer Learning encourages children to read with games and prizes. 

The Library also features a large community room

that can host community events.
