The Paxtang-Swatara Library is an all-volunteer organization that is funded by Swatara Township, the Paxtang Lions, and individual donations. The Library is not part of the Dauphin County Library system or government-financed. Donations are always welcome. If you would like to support the library, please send your check (payable to “Paxtang-Swatara Community Library”) to 3700 Rutherford St, Harrisburg, PA 17111. Thank you!

Library’s Collections: The Library’s collection of books ranges from current titles to old favorites for adults and children. New books are constantly being added. If you would like to suggest some books for the Library to purchase, please complete the Contact Us form.

Book Donations: Books can be donated ONLY if approved by a board member; please do not drop off books at the library without checking first.

Volunteers: A volunteer Board of Directors manages the Library. They purchase new books, organize the volunteers, and run special programs.
