We’re Reaching for the Stars

Over the past month you may have noticed little logos on our materials that look like the one here. Or, you may have seen those that reference a different literacy such as Information Literacy. These logos are for PA Forward, and you will see more of them from us in the future. What is PA Forward? It is a campaign of the Pennsylvania Library Association designed to improve the literacy of Pennsylvania residents in five key areas: basic, information, civic and social, health, and finances. PA Forward has been around for several years, but the Star Library Program began in January 2017. Paul Smith Library is now working toward this star status. Many of our programs already promote these literacies, but we will be adding more as we reach for our bronze, silver, and gold stars. Make sure to check out all of our programs and join us as we go PA Forward!
