The Lansdowne Public Library is a PA Forward library!

What is PA Forward?

The Pennsylvania Library Association’s 21st Century Literacies Initiative, PA Forward, was conceived to give voice to what the library community already knows, and what other states throughout the nation are also recognizing:

With the right support, libraries are ideally positioned to become the community centers of information, technology, and learning that will fuel educational and economic opportunity for all of our citizens.


Libraries have moved far beyond just being book repositories. They’re agile institutions serving real-life needs. Libraries are the key to powering progress and elevating the quality of life in Pennsylvania by fueling the types of knowledge essential to success: Basic Literacy, Information Literacy, Civic and Social Literacy, Health Literacy, and Financial Literacy.

We of the Lansdowne Public Library are looking towards PA Forward's goals to diversify our programming!  We are committed to expanding the library's role in our community and are eager to take the next steps through the PA Forward program.

The Lansdowne Public Library is now a Silver Star library

and are working towards earning a gold star!
