Mission Statement

The mission of the Lansdale Public Library is to enrich our community through the encouragement of early literacy, the fostering of life-long learning, and the inclusion and celebration of the cultural diversity in our area.
Lansdale Library


Founded in 1928, The Lansdale Public Library was a single room in the borough building and had a $1 membership fee. In 1958, a new building was built at Vine Street and Montgomery Avenue. In 1972, The LPL moved into its present location, 301 Vine Street, a former supermarket building that was renovated. The library was renovated again in 1997 to add space for a children's and teens' section.

Lansdale Borough


Lansdale Public Library serves the residents of the Borough of Lansdale. Proof of residency includes valid photo ID with current address or photo ID and a current utility bill. Non-residents are welcome to join for an annual family membership fee of $50. Senior citizen memberships are $40 per year. Free non-resident memberships may be available for those who are unable to afford one as scholarships are sometimes given through donations.

Some surrounding townships use the Lansdale post office as their mailing address. You may have a Lansdale mailing address; however, you are a non-resident if you do not live within the Lansdale Borough limits. View a map of Lansdale Bourough and its surrounding communities.

Lansdale Library receives no state or school district funding. We are supported by dedicated funding from Lansdale Borough and through membership fees, donations, and fundraising activities.
