Lawncrest Library

A Rebuild project


This Free Library branch serves the communities of Lawndale, Crescentville, Lawncrest, and Cedar Grove. It opened on September 18, 1961 and was last renovated in 2000. The library serves as a popular venue for community meetings, offers services to new Americans, and hosts a dynamic teen literacy program.

The Lawncrest Recreation Center is also a Rebuild project site.
