Library News

Donora Public Library is joining libraries nationwide to celebrate the many ways libraries lead their communities through services, programs and expertise. April 8-14 is National Library Week, an annual celebration of the life-changing work of libraries and library workers.

Libraries are not just places to borrow books or study—they’re also creative and engaging community centers where people can collaborate using new technologies and develop their skills and passions.

Libraries of all types have long been evolving to meet the needs of the communities they serve. Diverse groups depend on libraries and the resources they offer. Resources like e-books, access to the Internet and programs for job seekers are just a few of the ways libraries can transform the community. “Donora Public Library serves residents through our programming and the materials we offer,” said director Mark Boyer. “We want to take the lead by advocating for widespread access to crucial services and life-long learning. We level the playing field for people of any age who seek information and access to technologies they may not have at home to improve their quality of life.”

Programs offered at the Donora library include children’s story hours, flexibility and balance for adults, and clubs organized around Scrabble, knitting and crochet, books and Bridge. A local history room is available for genealogical and historic research. The downstairs meeting space is also home to the Mon Valley Community Band, led by conductor Max Gonano. “And during National Library Week, Donora Public Library will offer its annual used book sale, where readers can purchase a wide variety of books and other materials at a huge discount,” Boyer added.

The Donora library is a member of the Washington County Library System. Patrons can visit the Donora Public Library at 510 Meldon Avenue from 11 a.m.-7 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 11 a.m. - 5 p.m. Fridays and 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. on Saturday. The public can also access the library website at www.washlibs.org/Donora, or call 724-379-7940.

First sponsored in 1958, National Library Week is a national observance organized by the American Library Association (ALA) and libraries each April.
