We are a PA Forward  Silver Star library supporting the 5 literacies!

Library Program, Classes, and Workshops

 The focus of our library programs is community education structured around the five literacies promoted through the Pa Forward initiative:

  1. Basic Literacy
  2. Information Literacy
  3. Civil and Social Literacy
  4. Health Literacy
  5. Financial Literacy

[*Your library has acheived Silver Star status with the Pa Forward initiative!]

We also consider STEM programs that feature some aspect of Science, Technology, Engineering or Math to be important to education for all ages and target this in many programs. 

If you have a presentation which you think would make an excellent program that does not involve sales or proselytizing, please contact a member of the library staff to talk about your idea. We also like to provide opportunities to non-profit organizations that offer a service to area residents as Partner-of-the-Month, to offer  a program regarding their services at the library. Contact the Director for more information.
