2014 Historic Photography Exhibit, September 9 - November 18
"Faces of Ligonier: Veterans of World War I"

This year's exhibit commemorates the Ligonier veterans of World War I. As with our past exhibits, we are asking the community to lend photographs and documents for us to copy and add to the permanent collection of the Pennsylvania Room. We would also like to borrow artifacts and memorabilia relating to World War I. They will be returned at the conclusion of the exhibit.

 

All dates and times are subject to change, please stop by the Pennsylvania Room or call the library at 724-238-6451 to verify information.

Always something to see....

Formal displays and exhibits take place throughout the year and are located inside the Pennsylvania Room, around the Pennsylvania Room's hallway, and even in one of the outside window case near the library's main entrance. But even in between formal displays, visitors will be happy to know that there is always something to see in the library's Pa Room.
