102 West Main Street
The Matthews Public Library exists for the purpose of providing facilities and services for education, research, cultural enrichment, and the reading enjoyment for all the people of Northern Lebanon County.
The Fredericksburg Area Library was conceived in the minds of local residents as a hope for the future. Through diligent hard work and generous donations of books, volunteers unveiled the first library in April of 1982. It’s home was in the basement of the Fredericksburg Medical Center, where it remained until December 1989. Through the generous giving of time and resources by many civic minded residents, the old Church of God building at 136 West Main Street was completely renovated and became the library’s new home. Then, during the year 2002, residents of the community watched the construction of a beautiful new 7000 square foot building progress on the northwest corner of Center and Main Streets in Fredericksburg. This generous gift given by George and June Matthews will continue blessing the community of Northern Lebanon County for generations to come.
