Mission: Adams Memorial Library and its three branches provide traditional and progressive public library offerings, including: programs for all ages; fun and useful online tools; homework help; outreach for people with limited access to our brick-and-mortar buildings; a vibrant collection of over 90,000 items (including Blu-rays, DVDs, music CDs, downloadables, MP3s, games, puzzles, magazines and of course books) with thousands more added each year; and highly-trained and willing reference staff who provide personal assistance when navigating through the world of information.
Programs: Unlike many organizations, our program and our organization are nearly identical. Our entire purpose for existing is to provide resources for people that they would not have access to or could not afford to buy or maintain as individuals. It is impossible to separate our "program" from our "collection" -- they are one and the same. No longer limited to merely physical objects, our collection includes online, downloadable, and electronic formats in addition to traditional ones available in print materials. We also offer the latest and best media offerings.
This is my home library, but I don't live in Latrobe or Unity Township. I chose this library as my home library because everybody has been so kind and helpful to me. In fact, the people at the Unity Branch are the most helpful library staff I've encountered in 60+ years of borrowing. Every question I ask, no matter how stupid, is answered. They've obtained every book I've ever asked for, no matter how specialized and no matter far away they had to look for it. If I could give this library ten stars, I would!
This is my community library. I'm so proud of the staff at AML they are friendly, professional & helpful. AML runs programs across the age span of families. So there's something for my child, then something for me and something for US to do together. I support AML because it's a win/win..the library is there for the community and it's there for me. I encourage you to join me on Oct. 4 to support AML. Their children's library area is fantastic!
