About Our LibraryEstablished in 1939 by the local Women's Club, the Meyersdale Public Library has grown through the years into a vital resource, recognized for its quality of services to this rural region. The library maintains an extensive collection of more than 36,000 books. Seven computers offer Internet access and software programs to the public, and Wi-Fi is available. Our thanks to the Pennsylvania State Department of Education and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation; their support has made our technology resources possible. We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization receiving very little support from our local governments, and tax deductible contributions are welcome.
Vision StatementThe vision of the Meyersdale Public Library is to enhance the lives of those in our community by providing opportunities for patrons to attain their goals and realize their personal and professional potential. We hope to achieve this through quality programming, resources, technology, education, and information.
Mission StatementLibraries are not just about books, but about problem-solving through information. Our focus is to provide information resources, local history and genealogy services, and a creative and welcoming environment for children.
