Welcome to the website of the Tamaqua Public Library (located in Tamaqua, PA), a virtual and communal meeting place for library users seeking information, education, and recreation.

Our service area includes the Borough of Tamaqua, West Penn, Schuylkill, Walker, Rush, Ryan, and East Brunswick Townships.

We are located at 30 S. Railroad St. Tamaqua Pa 18252,

While our motto (as shown in Latin at the top of the page) is "Books, The Delight of the Soul," our town's library offers services far beyond books.
