Welcome to the

Union Library of Hatborough

The Union Library Company was formed in 1755.

An impressive list of thirty-eight people were the original subscribers! The Union Library of Hatboro is the third oldest in Pennsylvania, and the second oldest library to be operating under the original charter. The library was moved from house to house until the present building was built in 1849. The library building is on the National Register of Historic Places.

We’ll have messages and music from familiar Hatboro faces, too. Tune in at this time for the world premier of the 2020 Hatboro Tree Lighting video!  Check our Facebook…
