The Library's Long History



It takes People | 1965 | Opening Day: March 26, 2001 | It is Official: May 5, 2001

People

Some residents of Scott Township are a tenacious bunch, fortunately! In the early '60s these residents decided their community needed a library. Almost 35 years later, they got one! (One wonders if that is some kind of record?)

1965 Incorporation

Below is a photograph which ran in The Pittsburgh Press on January 23, 1965. Common Pleas Judge John G. Brosky is presenting a charter to incorporators of the Scott Township Library, Inc., which planed to solicit contributions for a public library in the community. Gerd Leston, W. T. Haddad, Ralph J. Oster Jr. John L. Spiegel and Saul Zisman were present.

It is Official!

Nothing is official until there is a party! That was on Saturday, May 5, 2001. It was a lovely day in Chartiers Valley for so many reason, but mostly because we finally got the library that so many had a vision of years before. The brochure of the day's events:

There are so many people to thank for making this library a reality. Many are mentioned in the documents above however, many are not. One thing is for sure, it takes a community to make and keep a library. To the members of this dedicated community - THANK YOU!
