The focus of our library programs is community education structured around the five literacies promoted through the Pa Forward initiative:
- Basic Literacy
- Information Literacy
- Civil and Social Literacy
- Health Literacy
- Financial Literacy
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.
