***What’s Happening***

2022 Ongoings

The Albion Area Public Library has a few events going on this year!

We will be continuing our “Take and Make” Book Program for the rest of 2022!! Look for new bags each month on our FB page.

February 1st- July 31st– The library is the beneficiary of the Country fair Charity Pumps at the Albion Location. So be sure to use those charity gas pumps while at the Albion Country Fair.

We are working with several departments at the Northwestern High school to continue our StoryWalk on the nature trail. Also, we will be hosting an event on May 21st, “Into the Woods” to celebrate the StoryWalk. The library has received a $250 mini-grant from Remake Learning Days- Northwestern PA to make this event possible. Our StoryWalk is an ongoing (year-round) activity that the Northwestern High School and Albion Area Public Library are working together on.

Summer Reading logs for children ages birth to grade 5 will be available June 13th- August 12th, 2022.

Project LIT Middle Schooler’s Book Club is an ongoing club for middle school students in the Northwestern School District. Please see your librarian for details!

UNDER CONSTRUCTION:

The Albion Library Board of Trustees and the Albion Borough Council are working hand-in-hand to repair and improve the library building. For these construction projects, in 2021, the library has received funding from the Erie Community Foundation’s Helping Today Grant that was combined with funding received by the Albion Borough from the Erie County Gaming and Revenue’s Anchor Building Grant. These two grants were combined to start a planning and design process that has helped the library and borough understand everything that needs repaired, updated, and/or renovated at the Albion Area Public Library. In March 2022, the Albion Borough in collaboration with the Albion Area Public Library has also been awarded the Keystone Grant for Public Libraries. These awards will be used to demolish and rebuild a new public access ADA handicap-accessible ramp and parking area at the rear of the library building.
