Fredricksen Library continues to provide a pick-up and drop-off site for library materials at the Hampden Township Recreation Building.  This convenient service allows Hampden Township residents to receive and return Cumberland County Library System materials at this location.

“Residents of Hampden Township make heavy use of Fredricksen Library programs and materials, and we are hopeful that the drop-off / pick-up site will provide one more way that the library can be of service,” says Bonnie Goble, Fredricksen Library Director.
The Hampden Township Board of Commissioners added, “Thanks to the Cumberland County Commissioners and Fredricksen Library for partnering with Hampden Township on this project and providing this new service to our residents.”

Library requests can be made in the same manner as before – online, by phone or in-person at any library by using a county library card. Residents will now be able to designate Hampden as the pick-up destination. Patrons will receive notification, either by automated phone message or via email that their item is ready to be picked up at the Township Recreation Building. Hampden residents who need a library card can sign up online at and get a temporary card for 30 days, then stop at Fredricksen at their convenience for a permanent one.

Materials can be picked up at the Recreation Building, located at 5001 Hampden Park Dr., Mechanicsburg, during normal operating hours, 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday to Friday. Residents must show their library card to access the items. They can be dropped off at any time during operating hours or by placing them in a drop box. Items will be transported back to Fredricksen Library where they will be checked in. Normal overdue charges will apply if materials are late.

Fredricksen Library is a member of the Cumberland County Library system and services residents of five communities, including Camp Hill Borough, Hampden Township, Lemoyne Borough, Lower Allen Township and Wormleysburg Borough. It also operates the East Pennsboro Branch Library in Enola. For more information, visit
