Our library’s Story Hour children’s programming received a donation of $150 from our local Elks Lodge 1951. The library was among ten Meyersdale-area programs to receive a donation in honor of the national Elks organization’s 150th Anniversary. We thank the Elks for their generosity!
Hard as it is to believe in the current weather, summer WILL come, and with it the usual heat and humidity. The main section of the library will be comfortable, however. On February 6, our new air conditioning system will be installed, to replace our current, aging window air conditioning units. Our thanks go to the FPL Energy Meyersdale Wind Power Fund, administered through the Community Foundation for the Alleghenies, whose grant funds make this project possible. Thanks are also extended to our Friends of the Library group for contributing matching funds.

We’d like to extend a big THANK YOU to the children at the Learning Ladder. They collected $691.14 in coins for donation to the library. We are thrilled that these young people are so supportive of our library!
Think of our library when you shop this Christmas season.
“Shop local” whenever you can. A healthy local and regional economy is good for us all, including the library! Often, local businesses will “special order” things for you that they don’t have in stock. If you can’t find what you want, ask!
If you absolutely cannot find what you want through our local merchants, and you’re drawn to Amazon, support the library with Amazon Smile.
To shop at AmazonSmile simply go to smile.amazon.com from the web browser on your computer or mobile device.
