A cold case from WWII comes to a boil at the State Library! Join author Wade Fowler for a discussion about his book Rising Sun Descending! June 15th at 12 Noon in room 321, Forum Building.
The State Library is proud to host the traveling exhibit, “Local Poverty: Up Close & Personal”.

See the exhibit on display in the Main Library Reading room through June, 2016.
On loan from Warren Library Association, the goal of “Local Poverty: Up Close and Personal” project is to empower residents in poverty to share their stories through photographs and narratives.  We invite you to view the photographs and get a better sense of what life is life when living in poverty every day.
This project is made possible by a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services as administered by the Pennsylvania Department of Education through the Office of Commonwealth Libraries, and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, Tom Wolf, Governor.


The next meeting of the State Library’s book club will be held:

Date: Thursday, August 18, 2016
Time: 12 Noon to 1pm
Location: Forum Building
The book we will be discussing is “Her Royal Spyness” by Rhys Bowen.
Her ridiculously long name is Lady Victoria Georgiana Charlotte Eugenie, daughter to the Duke of Atholt and Rannoch. And she is flat broke. As the thirty-fourth in line for the throne, she has been taught only a few things, among them, the perfect curtsey. But when her brother cuts off her allowance, she leaves Scotland, and her fiancé Fish-Face, for London, where she has: 
a) worked behind a cosmetics counter—and gotten sacked after five hours
b) started to fall for a quite unsuitable minor royal
c) made some money housekeeping (incognita, of course), and
d) been summoned by the Queen to spy on her playboy son
Then an arrogant Frenchman, who wants her family’s 800-year-old estate for himself, winds up dead in her bathtub. Now her most important job is to clear her very long family name.
