 Mengle Memorial Library is a Family Place Library.

Mengle Memorial Library in Brockway was recognized as a Family Place Library and presented with their banner on July 21.  Featured in the library photo are: James Sterrett, Representative Matt Gabler, Richard Faller, Brenda Gaffey, Rosalee Pituch, Darlene Marshall, Tracy LaStella, Molly DeSantis, Darlene Chamberlin, Melissa Schmader, Mark Adams (representative of Senator Scarnati), Magnus Dean, and Amelia Dean.  Tracy LaStella from Family Place Libraries in New York presented the importance of Family Place Libraries at the event.  In the afternoon, Representative Cris Dush also took time to visit the library & learn about the program. 

Family Place Libraries are special because they focus on all areas of child development, with programs and play spaces dedicated to young children.  In addition to books, programs and story time, Mengle Memorial Library offers a space to come play that is developmentally appropriate.  The library has an inviting play area where children can bake a cake, build a castle, read a book, build a train track, put on a puppet show, & use their imaginations.  The play kitchen is a favorite spot for many of our young visitors.  Extremely popular right now is our new Lego table.  This new addition was purchased with funds from our Friends of the Library Wonderful Wednesday event held in April. 

This project is made possible by a grant from the Institute of Museum & Library Services as administered by the Pennsylvania Department of Education through the Office of Commonwealth Libraries, & the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, Tom Wolf, Governor.

Mengle Memorial Library is a participating site for the Statewide Access card.

The Mengle Memorial Library serves as the headquarters for the Jefferson County Library System.
