The Fendrick Library is proud of the part we play in the local community through the programs that we sponsor. Although the library serves all age groups in the community, we feel it is important to promote and encourage reading and appreciation of the library to children and youth.
- We therefore offer a Weekly Story Hour on Wednesday mornings throughout the school year. It is an hour filled with stories, crafts, activities, and a snack for pre-schoolers (siblings welcome). Mothers and fathers are encouraged to attend with their children.
- Each summer after school lets out, the library offers its "Summer Reading Program". This program is assigned a theme each year, with activities and crafts and books to read all referenced to the theme. This year, due to the many problems associated with the Covid-19 virus, the Fendrick Library is working in association with all of the libraries in Franklin and Fulton Counties to bring a variety of programming to our communities. For more information , click the links to the right on this page to go to the Summer Programs and Summer Challenge.
- Book discussion groups for adults and young people are available. Guest lecturers on topics of interest as well as book signings by local authors are scheduled as often as possible.
- The annual "Used Book Sale" is held annually during Mercersburg's Spring Fest in May and Mercersburg's Town Fest in September. It always attracts quite a crowd.
The Fendrick Book Group schedule for 2018-2019 is available HERE and a very brief synopsis of the selections can be found HERE.
