The mission of Western Allegheny Community Library is to inspire, engage, and educate the community through high quality, fun, creative, and informative programming and services.
Books have always been an integral part of my life. We had built-in bookshelves by my toy room when I was younger that were full of Stephen King, Agatha Christie, encyclopedias, dictionaries, and more. I was that kid – I read the encyclopedia. The library was my safe place, my quiet place, and my favorite place, in middle school especially because the librarian treated me as a person and welcomed me into the world of books. To this day, I treasure all books and libraries. They’re my escape."
