The goal of the State Library is to be a repository of the written word of Pennsylvania. The library collects and preserves U.S. and Pennsylvania government documents; laws and regulations; other materials pertaining to Pennsylvania; and books that cover various subjects. Agencies should deposit with the State Library documents produced for the general public.
