Upper St. Clair Observes 2021 National Library Week

A proclamation issued at the April Board of Commissioners regular meeting designates April 4-10, 2021 as National Library Week in Upper St. Clair. 

The 2021 theme for National Library Week, "Welcome to Your Library," promotes the idea that libraries extend far beyond the four walls of a building -- and that everyone is welcome to use their services.

In times of crisis, such as the COVID-19 pandemic, libraries, librarians and library workers play an invaluable role in supporting their communities both in person and virtually. 

Upper St. Clair Library Director Chris Gmiter accepted the proclamation from Board of Commissioners President Mark D. Christie. Mr. Gmiter became the Library Director at the beginning of the pandemic, and is excited about the Upper St. Clair Library's future.

"Over my 25 years of experience in libraries, the community support here in Upper St. Clair is unmatched," said Mr. Gmiter. 

"The library is something we are really proud of," said Commissioner Christie. 

The Upper St. Clair Library has a number of e-resources and virtual programming available online. The current hours of operation for in-person service and browsing are:
Monday & Tuesday: 10 a.m.-4 p.m.
Wednesday: 1 p.m.-7 p.m.
Thursday & Friday: 10 a.m.-4 p.m.
Saturday & Sunday: Closed
