Dig Into Reading
Our new space was great for "Dig Into Reading" this past June, when Janine Surmick from Riverquest in Pittsburgh presented a cool underground session all about Marcellus shale gas drilling and water quality to the kids.
Current borrowers are urged to stop by the Library with I.D. to update their patron cards for use with the library's new computer system. The new system requires each person to update their information to get a new library card. Those under 18 need a parent to accompany them to update their information.
