Welcome to the Littlestown Library, serving communities, families and kids of all ages in southeastern Adams County. As a branch of the Adams County Library System (ACLS), we provide friendly service, a convenient location and easy access books, movies, music, audiobooks, programs, activities and more. The collections from the other five branches located in Gettysburg, Biglerville, New Oxford, Carroll Valley and East Berlin are readily available as well.
The Harbaugh-Thomas Library, a branch of the Adams County Library System (ACLS), opens gateways for exploration. We do this by providing a welcoming environment containing library materials, programs, meeting rooms and more for all ages. The children’s area includes a classroom-size set of blocks and a rotating group of building toys selected to encourage children’s development. Computers with internet access and wi-fi are available for use.
We are a branch of the Adams County Library System serving southwestern Adams County. Our library is located in the new Greater Carroll Valley Community and Education Complex building next to the beautiful Carroll Valley Park. It is a nice bright space with lots of books, DVDs, music, and magazines to check out. We also have a big set of wooden blocks and other fun building toys that were provided by grants from the Pennsylvania Department of Education.
Today you will enter the library door to see new digital signage, tables and chairs for casual reading and computer use. Public computers are available for use daily. People are always looking for a movie, audiobook and, of course, a new book by their favorite author.

On Monday, February 26 Booktalk presents a CD lecture from “The Classics of British Literature.” Once again our guest lecturer is Dr. John Sutherland, Professor Emeritus of “Modern English Literature” at University College London. He titles his discussion “Wuthering Heights—Emily’s Master Work.”
The Friends of the Library want to take the opportunity to make the public aware of their organization and to let them know exactly what we do. This is not a fund raiser, but a “Friend raiser” with the officers and other members present. “We hope to get people interested in joining us and will have membership brochures available,” says current Friends President Mary Lou Berg. The Friends are eager to highlight what they have accomplished this past year and what they want to do in 2018. Cookies and small bottles of water will be served.

I love classic literature. These stories have a certain resonation, a true testament to their relevancy in today’s hectic life, even if the story is over two hundred years old. Classic stories in any form touch thousands of people around the world, whether it’s reading an edition of a story published two hundred years ago, or watching Hollywood’s adaption or even PBS’ miniseries on Masterpiece Theater. There are elements to the story that still apply to twenty-first century living.
