Ribbon cutting booked for Lakeview Victorian library

LAKEVIEW — Much is happening inside the Lakeview Area Public Library, which has maintained its Victorian charm.

Volunteer Hope Gaydos is painting a decorative border in the children's books room and  she's also painting a Lakeview Area Public Library sign to be placed in the front yard.

There were nearly 3,000 visits to the library, 56 Lacock St., Sandy Lake, in 2011, according to Maria Farrell, a board director. She and Theresa Panner, the library's volunteer director, welcomed a group from the McQuiston Center in Sandy Lake.

In 2009, William and Carolyn Silzle donated the Wright House as a library, for community service and educational services, in memory of his parents Mr. and Mrs. Leon Silzle, Mrs. Panner said.

The lovely Victorian-era structure, built in the 1870s, does need new siding and a new roof and donations are much appreciated.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony will be held April 14, and a public open house will be on April 15 with light refreshments and tours.

Books (including audio and big print books); DVDs; and videos are easily located, due to the work of many volunteers.

There is fax access, a copier and a computer room. The latter holds three computers with wireless available.

Library patrons (membership is $8 a year) are allowed to use the computers for free, while non-patrons will be charged $1 for every 30 minutes of computer use.

Numerous agencies can be accessed from the computer with no charge through LINK, such as Mercer County Social Security Administration, Mercer County Area on Aging, Disabilities Options Network, Keystone Blind Association and many more.

Mrs. Panner said they are in the process of having a literacy program to help the unemployed become employable, teach resume writing and how to present oneself at a job interview.  Also, they are working with Girl Scouts Silver Star program to develop pre-school story time.

Those from the Lakeview area of communities are encouraged to take advantage of the services provided in Sandy Lake, whether or not they are library members.

The library is handicapped accessible and there is handicap parking. A parking area for others is located along Dunn Street, at the corner of Dunn and Lacock and next to the library.

Call 724-376-4217 for hours and other information. Email; fax 724-376-2208.
