Welcome to the Sharpsburg Community Library
The Sharpsburg Community Library is a branch of the Cooper-Siegel Community Library offering a full range of library services: books and DVDs for all ages, computer access, WiFi, printing, faxing. Items from other libraries may be requested and picked up at the library. We also have a Little Free Pantry outside (stocked 3 times/week) and are Narcan certified. Visitors are invited to sit in the courtyard during the spring and summer, and families can play with the toys in the children’s room.
We present a variety of programs for all ages including storytimes, STEM, art, book clubs, art exhibits, and community dialogues. See the Event page for more details about programs or to register.

Our Little Free Pantry accepts shelf-stable food and toiletries. We especially need proteins (canned tuna, Compleat meals, Spaghetti-os, nuts). Please check expiration dates on items and bring inside to library staff.
Gently used or new books and DVDs are accepted for our book sale.

06/25/22 @ 12:00pm - 06/25/22 @ 2:00pm Sharpsburg Community Library Drop-ins welcome as space permits. The PA Poverty: Up Close and Personal project empowered residents of Warren County living in poverty to share their stories – their lives - through photographs and narratives; to make us aware of poverty within the area and what we all have in common; and to educate our communities as to how they can help those in need. It was a grant-funded project of Warren Public Library and is on loan to us by WPL. We will also be adding informational panels with statistics about poverty locally in Allegheny County and Sharpsburg. WPL's Executive Director Kelli Knapp will provide a short presentation on the exhibit virtually at 1pm. Can't make the opening reception? Stop by any time during library hours to view this exhibit through Tuesday 7/26. Exhibit is on view in the Fiction and Non-fiction Rooms.
