Libraries are truly for everyone. No longer simply a repository for books (though don’t worry, we still have lots of books), libraries are places of community, where people come together to learn, socialize, and have fun. And yes, to find books. Whether you’re interested in history, gardening, crafting, trivia, or technology, the libraries of Adams County have something for you.

According to Punxsutawney Phil, spring is just around the corner, and nothing says spring like baseball. On March 26, MLB opening day, Gettysburg will host Ted Knorr, an historian of Negro League Baseball and a member of the Society for American Baseball Research (SABR), who will discuss the history of the Negro Leagues. Attendees will have a chance to win a Negro League Homestead Grays Heritage Jersey.

Jess Shelleman is the branch manager of the Littlestown Library.
