Celebrate National Library Week

Unlimited Possibilities @ Your Library

Sunday, April 12 to Saturday, April 18


Libraries are important in Lackawanna County. That’s why more than 60,000 county residents have library cards, and why more than 750,000 visits are made to Lackawanna County libraries every year. During National Library Week we pause to reflect on the value libraries offer our communities.


Our libraries are not just warehouses for books. In Lackawanna County libraries are innovative educational resources with forward-thinking programming. In addition to providing traditional materials to address basic literacy, we are doing our part to close the digital divide and level the playing field by providing free access to information and technologies that many in our communities would be hard pressed to find elsewhere.


All across the country libraries help to ensure the American dream and promote democracy by providing service to all regardless of race, ethnicity, creed, age, ability, sexual orientation, gender identity or socio-economic status.


Celebrations will take place in all Lackawanna County libraries next week. Stop by and see the unlimited possibilities we have to offer.
