Age Lowered for Library Card
Starting in September for National Library Card Sign-up month, the age to get a library card at Ligonier Valley Library was lowered to five. Even though we are into October now, stop in and sign your little one up for their library card and give them a pass port for adventure!

Veteran’s Day Event
We will have Purple Heart Veteran Retired Lieutenant Colonel Leo Ciaramiaro with us. He will share his story and his Purple Heart Medal with families and children. Families will learn about the history of the Purple Heart and will also listen to a story called Pepper’s Purple Heart. Afterwards, children will be creating their very own medal of honor after learning the significance behind such medals.
Registration will open on October 14. This program will be from 10:30 until 12:00 and registration will be required. Free and best for ages 5 and older.
Christmas Tree Decorating Event
Families and children will listen to stories, sing songs, decorate our library Christmas Tree and at least one craft will be available for the children to make.
We will have a very special guest to visit with the children! Ho ho ho! We will be partnering with the Kiwanis Club of Ligonier Valley to provide treats and a special guest to children in attendance.
We will have a special guest Janet Arida from Highmark Caring Place here to read a special story. She will have a craft available focusing on keeping memories alive of those we may be missing during the Christmas Season.
Families can bring their very own ornament to add to our tree or use the ornaments we have here at the library. Free and open to everyone who would like to attend. No registration required.
