Point of Interest Details

The Bloomsburg Public Library is a High Georgian Revival Style. Verus T. Ritter was the architect. Appreciate the engaged stone façade and pedimented gable roof. Note the stone relief depicting the shield from the Pennsylvania coat of arms in the triangular pediment. An outcome of Bloomsburg’s centennial celebration in 1902 was the establishment of a free public library. It began in rented rooms until this building was erected at a cost of $100,000; the addition at the right was completed in 1998.
