The Mount Gretna Community Library is housed in one of the oldest buildings owned by the Mount Gretna Campmeeting Association.
Originally, the building served as the Fire Department’s Engine House. In 1919, the building was turned over to the Ladies Civic Club to use as an art store—selling sewing, knitting, and crocheting supplies—and a library. Decades later, the building was home to a gift and antique shop.
Early Campmeeting maps show a building that could be the Engine House near the Tabernacle. However, the building clearly was moved to its current location on Glossbrenner Avenue although when that occurred is not known.
The Mount Gretna Community Library is operated by the Campmeeting Board of Managers’ Library Committee.
Heritage Park, the location of the playground and community picnic grounds, is located in the Mt. Gretna Campmeeting along Rt. 117 and is entered from the parking lot off of 1st Street.
The playground is maintained by the Campmeeting for the use of all children from neighboring communities. There are restrooms in the park that are open during daylight hours year-round.
In addition to the playground facilities, a charcoal grill and picnic tables are available for your use.
The pavilion at Heritage Park is available for rent April through October from 9am to 9pm. When renting the pavilion, you are renting the use of the pavilion and the tables under its roof not the surrounding park area or restrooms.
The pavilion has hot and cold running water and a garbage disposal but no refrigerator or stove. There are outlets available for your use for cooking/heating devices you may wish to supply. For additional information and fees, please refer to the "Heritage Park Pavilion Information Sheet" below.
Events already scheduled in Heritage Park or rentals of the pavilion are posted on our calendar visible on the "News and Events" page.
If you have questions about renting the pavilion, please feel free to contact the office. If you would like to submit a rental application, the form is available below and can be submitted via e-mail or through the postal service.
