When the Library opened in the 1940's, Philipsburg had a place to borrow books. The Library no longer offers just books-on-the-shelf. You can download free books and audiobooks from your easy chair. The Partners Sharing Group allows you to find almost anything. The Library is a place to meet friends, do homework, use a computer or printer, use wireless or participate in one of its many programs. We are a community hub!
