History

The Fallston Branch of Harford County Public Library held its grand opening celebration in March of 1985. Located on Rt. 152, the 13,500 square foot library is a destination for many in the surrounding region. With a population area of 10,303, Fallston is a very active branch.

The Fallston Branch has an active Friends group, the second oldest in the county. They host highly successful book sales twice a year, in April and mid-November. The Fallston Friends also sponsor the Evening Book Discussion Group on the first Monday evening of each month (September – June). The Fallston Library offers a Daytime Book Discussion Group on the third Wednesday morning of each month (September – June).

The Fallston Branch has recently developed two very successful community partnerships. A partnership with the new Veronica “Roni” Chenowith Activity Center provides book and film discussion groups and gaming activities for the senior population. The Fallston Branch also works with at-risk adolescents participating in the Freestate Challenge Academy cadet program, offering community service projects and job-shadowing opportunities as well as book discussion groups, scavenger hunts, use of library computers and other fun activities for the group.

The Fallston Branch also has an ongoing partnership with various scout troops in the area, who are often called upon to assist with the setup of the Friends book sales. The branch was recently chosen as the recipient of an Eagle Scout Project for Troop 899 with the newly renovated landscaping at the front of the branch the impressive result. The plants used are not only beautiful, but local to the region, sustainable, and slow-growing.
