The library was founded in 1921 by the Century Club of Pottstown. The library has been at the location of 500 E. High Street (corner of High and Washington streets) since 1962. The building was once the local post office, and is over one hundred (100) years old.
2021 is the 100th anniversary of the Pottstown Regional Public Library as it is today. This year we are looking back on the history of libraries in Pottstown, and the founding of Pottstown Regional Public Library. Special thanks goes out to Frances Hylton, our board president, for researching and compiling these fun and interesting facts!
