    The Old Library by Lake Afton

    It may look just like a pretty little church, but it isn’t. 

    The Old Library by Lake Afton is Yardley’s landmark. 

    For 100 years, the distinctive Victorian building served as the town’s public library. 

    Today it is preserved and maintained by the Yardley Historical Association. 

    Inside is a growing collection of books, photographs, newspapers, maps and ephemera related to the history of Yardley and its surroundings.

    Come discover the Old Library and take advantage of the variety of educational and entertaining activities that the Yardley Historical Association sponsors throughout the year. 

    Book Swaps, bringing to mind the Old Library’s original use, are held quarterly.

    Guided walking tours of downtown Yardley step off in the spring and fall and are an excellent way to learn more about the community. Local history and timely topics are featured at quarterly meetings. 

    Special holiday events are highlights.  Most activities take place in the Old Library located at 46 West Afton Avenue.

    The Old Library by Lake Afton may be rented for private events. 

    Its idyllic setting and Victorian charm make it a perfect venue for parties and gatherings of up to 50 adults – showers, weddings, birthdays, and meetings. 

    Use of the Old Library collections by the public is available by appointment.  Volunteers interested in helping to catalog and protect items in the collection are very welcome.
