Libraries have moved far beyond just being book repositories. They’re agile institutions serving real-life needs. Libraries can be key to powering progress and elevating the quality of life in PA by fueling the types of knowledge essential to success. All public libraries in Pennsylvania, including the three public libraries here in Union County, are working together to develop programs, collections and services that support five essential literacies: Basic Literacy, Information Literacy, Civic and Social Literacy, Health Literacy, and Financial Literacy. As part of the PA Forward initiative, logos on the libraries’ event flyers and marketing materials will identify which specific literacies the programs/events support.
Visit any of the three libraries in Union County to take advantage of exciting programs and events and become part of moving PA Forward!
