Reference Resource Center
Bosler is one of two Reference Resource Centers in Cumberland County. We can provide reference services either in person or by telephone. The library has a wide information network that we can use to answer your question.
The library offers a variety of collections, services and programs. With a collection of over 107,000 items (books, large print books, magazines, books on CD, and movies in DVD and Blu-ray format), we hope that we be able to meet your informational and recreational needs.
In addition to our adult collection, the Children's Department located on the 2nd floor of the West Wing, has picture books, Early Readers in three different levels, chapter books for elementary-age readers, and non-fiction books to assist with homework or reading to learn.
The addition of the West Wing and connecting ramp and stairs was completed on May 2, 1987. It added the needed space to Bosler Library. When it opened in 1987, only the first floor was utilized. The Children's Department was located in a small room with a bay window looking out on the rest of the area. The Children's Library, as we know it today, was opened on April 13, 1994. This expanded space is on the second floor of the West Wing.
Today, Bosler has 17,540 square-feet of space dedicated to serving the residents of Carlisle Borough, Dickinson Township, Lower Frankford Township, Middlesex Township, North Middleton Township, South Middleton Township, and West Pennsboro Township.
