Located at the corner of Market and Queen Streets since 1935, this city landmark has three levels of collection, program, and gathering spaces. Here, you can find the largest collection of books in York County, research expertise, over 70 computers, and learning experiences for all ages. Programs in our Children’s Library meet state standards for early childhood education and support students' individual growth. The Teen Forum provides a space for teens to have fun, explore opportunities, discuss important issues, and construct their futures. Stop by, enjoy the experience, and create new possibilities at Martin Library!
