The Indian Valley Public Library is part of The Pennsylvania Library Association’s 21st Century Literacies Initiative, PA Forward.

PA Forward gives voice to what the library community already knows, and what other states throughout the nation are also recognizing: With the right support, libraries are ideally positioned to become the community centers of information, technology, and learning that will fuel educational and economic opportunity for all of our citizens. Libraries have moved far beyond just being book repositories. They’re agile institutions serving real-life needs. Libraries can be key to powering progress and elevating the quality of life in PA by fueling the types of knowledge essential to success: Basic paforwardLiteracy, Information Literacy, Civic and Social Literacy, Health Literacy, and Financial Literacy.

It is the job of Indian Valley Public Library to provide resources and programs to promote these five literacies – you’ll be seeing signage in the library as well as on our promotional material highlighting one of the five literacies. This doesn’t change what we do, it gives us resources to connect with and support from our state association to provide our community with the tools they need to become successful citizens of Pennsylvania.
