Delayed PA state funds endangering libraries

Libraries in the Westmoreland Library Network are funded, partially, by the state of Pennsylvania.  Last summer, the state approved $70 million for the libraries in the state.  However, this money has yet to be released and the future of libraries are at stake!

26 libraries in Westmoreland County, alone, will be affected by this stalemate in legislation.

We urge you to contact your state legislators and ask them to fight for your libraries and our children’s future!
