Resources and Services for Libraries

The Office of Commonwealth Libraries' Bureau of Library Development strengthens and improves Pennsylvania's library services by:

  • Providing advisory services and continuing education for library staff and volunteer leadership at public, school, academic, and special libraries;
  • Coordinating and funding library services and programs, such as POWER Library or Library Services for the Visually Impaired and Disabled;
  • Awarding state Keystone Recreation, Park, and Conservation Act grants to public libraries for construction and renovation projects; and
  • Collecting financial and statistical data (primarily from public libraries).
