Community Library 95th anniversary celebration includes sidewalk book sale in Tarentum
A personal library could be started for just $4.
That’s how much a bag of books costs at the sidewalk book sale being held by the Community Library of Allegheny Valley as part of the library’s observance of its 95th anniversary this week. They even provide the bags.
The sale runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday and continues Wednesday and Friday at the library in Tarentum. The library, on Lock Street, is closed on Thursdays.
In addition to books, there are music CDs and jewelry on tables outside the library.
A variety of events are being held through Saturday at both library locations in Tarentum and Harrison.
A session on the Burtner House is being held from 1 to 3 p.m. Tuesday at the Harrison library. A program on the library’s history, “Reflections of the Past,” is scheduled for 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. there.
Sessions on genealogy are being held from 10 a.m. to noon Wednesday and Friday in Tarentum.
Programs on healthy living are being held Wednesday at the Harrison location between 1 p.m. and 3 p.m., including a program with WTAE news anchor Michelle Wright and Chef Keith Jannsen from 1 to 2 p.m. It’s followed with more health-related sessions on Thursday, with a program followed by blood pressure screenings at 1 p.m.; chair massage from 2 to 3 p.m.; and chiropractic from 6 to 7 p.m.
Technology will be the focus in an “interactive technology petting zoo” from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Friday at Harrison.
