The library is pleased to announce that we have reached our Capital Campaign goal. We are currently finalizing construction plans for our elevator project. We would like to thank everyone for their help in obtaining our goal.
The library is now able to use the new parking lot located behind the building. We were able to fill and level the land in the spring. The paving will start as soon as the fill settles. The new parking lot is a wonderful addition to the library.

Preschool Connection Grant
The library is a recipient of a Preschool Connection LSTA Grant. This project has been funded with federal Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) funds administered by the Office of Commonwealth Libraries.
The LSTA Preschool Connection grant gave the library the opportunity to purchase numerous manipulatives (including puzzles), toys, cds, books, rugs, a rocker, and a train table.
These materials make our library a family destination place. Families now have a place to play with their children and to meet other families in the community.
Come check out our new health information! Thanks to a LSTA grant for the Jefferson County Library System, our library was provided with over 100 new resources covering all aspects of health information.

Mother Goose on the Loose
The library hosted a workshop on the award winning early childhood literacy program “Mother Goose on the Loose.” The event was well attended by library directors, staff, and volunteers, along with workers from area children’s services agencies. Children from Pendelton’s Daycare enjoyed a “Mother Goose on the Loose” story time provided by Dr. Betsy Diamant-Cohen, creator of the program.
