This is the McBride Memorial Library , which first opened on January 16, 2008. It was built in 2007 after the original Market Street School building was razed in 2006. Originally, land owned by the Jackson family was donated to allow for the creation of a public school on the

property. The original school building was constructed in 1870. After it was no longer used for classes, the Berwick Area School district still retained its offices here until shortly after the turn of the 21st century.
