As of March 17th we are CLOSED to the public.

The April 19, 2020 dedication celebration of our newly expanded facility has been postponed, in response to health measures in place due to the COVID-19 virus. We intend to reschedule to a date not prior to September 2020, and will keep you informed when the time arrives to set that date.

It is with heavy hearts that we are canceling our annual Penn Dry Goods Market antiques show and textile history lecture series due to the COVID-19 emergency. We’d rather keep all of our friends safe than take the risk. There’s a bright light on the horizon though. All of our speakers have consented to come back next year (barring any scheduling changes), so if you couldn’t make this year’s Market, you’ll get another chance to hear this superb roster of lectures. Also, we have many exciting changes in store for our Market regulars—you’ll notice our building has expanded…just a tad! There will be more galleries and new exhibits to explore, and a whole lot more! Thanks to all of you who have supported us and the Market – we can’t wait to see you again, and welcome some new friends!

The Schwenkfelder Library & Heritage Center, with its internationally recognized collections and research facilities, engages visitors in exploration of the themes of religious freedom, tolerance, migration, and heritage in their own lives and the lives of their families through the stories of the Schwenkfelders and the Pennsylvania Germans of the Perkiomen region - people whose bonds of faith, family, and community tell a fundamental American story.
