The Valley Community Library, formerly Interboro-United Districts Library, opened on December 15, 1985, in the former Wilson Fire Company / Blakely Borough Building in Peckville, Pennsylvania. The Library acquired the entire building in November of 1986. For years, the Library offered books and programs for members of all ages in the Valley area. Some of the most remembered programs included the bicycle safety event, Summer Reading parties on the second floor, annual pictures for children with Santa, and Halloween celebrations. As the needs of the community grew, the Library soon outgrew its small home.
With the continuous help of those in our service area, the Library moved to its newly built facility at 739 River Street in 2004. In addition to the new building, our name was changed to Valley Community Library, as we serve the Blakely, Dickson City, Throop, Olyphant, Jessup, and Archbald communities. The Valley Library is also one of the newest members of the Lackawanna County Library System, which was established in 1983.
Before the Covid-10 Pandemic, The Valley Community Library hosted a variety of programs and events for individuals of all ages. Children and teens loved our weekly story times and other special events, like Summer Reading. Adults enjoyed our monthly book discussions, Cook Book Club, craft nights, and more.
Although our doors are open and patrons have access to the library, we were still unable to hold most of our fundraisers in 2020 and 2021. Any donation on NEPA Gives Day will help the Valley Community Library to continue to grow and serve the members of our community.
Since the library reopened in the Summer of 2021, our staff has been diligently working on virtual programs and items such as crafts and activity sheets for our patrons to take home.
Thank you so much for your support of the Valley Community Library. Your donation is a gift to the entire community.
