THANK YOU!

We would like to thank everyone in the community who participated in our Wonderful Wednesdays and Surprise Saturday events.  Together we raised almost $2000.00 for the library. We couldn't have done it without the support of our wonderful community!

Teen Reading Lounge      

Join us for the teen book club the first Tuesday of each month.  Call the library or come in to sign up or to get more information.

Mengle Memorial Library in Brockway is continuing the Teen Reading Lounge. Teen Reading Lounge (TRL) is a program designed to get students in middle and high school excited about and discussing the humanities. Teens who participate in TRL will participate in book discussions, projects, and activities to get them talking and thinking about literature.

In recent years, science and math have taken a prominent place in education, and the study of humanities has taken a bit of a back seat.  But it is through the study of the humanities that we learn about other people, places and cultures. Through these studies, we learn speaking and listening skills, critical thinking and comprehension skills, and how to relate to others.

This is a fun program with activities and book discussions (check our calendar of events for book titles, dates, and times).  Teen Reading Lounge is a program of the Pennsylvania Humanities Council, supported by the National Endowment for the Humanities and federal Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) funds administered by the Office of the Commonwealth Libraries.
