About

The Berks Thun Library features the Boscov-Lakin Information Commons, a welcoming, state-of-the-art, technology-enriched environment that supports the teaching and learning needs of undergraduate students, faculty, and staff. The library offers the latest technology in its two classrooms and includes a Media Commons suite with a One Button Studio, recording booth, and three video editing rooms. The facility also houses a conference room, the Cohen Lounge, a Collaboration Commons, technology pods, a reading lounge, ten small study rooms, eight group study rooms, and the Wyomissing Polytechnic Institute Exhibit and Timeline. Additional space and technology information is available in the “Study at the Library” section.

Our collections include approximately 50,000 volumes and support the courses offered at Penn State Berks. We also offer extensive research collections that span topics from children’s books to ethics, and offer a large selection of popular leisure viewing and reading titles.
