2019 Summer Reading Program: A Universe of Stories!
Registration begins Monday, May 20th

Registration for our 2019 Summer Reading Program “A Universe of Stories”
starts on Monday, May 20th. Stop by anytime from that day on to register!

Each year, nearly 200 children participate in our Summer Reading Program!
One of our goals each year is to keep the kids reading throughout the summer,
bridging that gap between school years when some of the previous year’s progress can be forgotten.

The kids who participate in our program complete reading logs,
which earn them raffle tickets good for a chance to win fun and exciting prizes.

We are looking for donations of prizes!

If your family would like to donate prizes to our program, please let us know!
Prizes can be anything from books and DVDs, to toys and gift cards.
– – – Anything would be appreciated! – – –

If you have any questions, or need suggestions for items to donate,
please call the Library at 724.446.9940 or email

As always, we appreciate your support!!

“Blast Off Into Space” with Mad Science Pittsburgh

Come with us to explore space as we travel to the outer reaches of our solar system!

Then we will begin our journey, dodging comets and meteors,
and make our first stop on the moon!
Take a picture and put your boot into the Moon’s surface!
And if that isn’t enough, prepare for liftoff with a miniature rocket launch!

Following the science show, we will have our annual Pizza Party,
sponsored by the Friends of the Library!

Registration is requested for this event, so we know how much pizza to order.
