PA Secretary Of Education Announces Saturday Hours For State Library

Beginning April 13, Library to be Open Second Saturday of Each Month

HARRISBURG, Pa., April 12, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- PA Secretary of Education Ron Tomalis today announced that beginning April 13, the Main Reading Room at the State Library in Harrisburg will be open from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on the second Saturday of each month.  This marks the first time in more than three years that the State Library will be open during the weekend.

"Offering weekend hours will accommodate those who cannot visit the library during the week as well as provide Pennsylvania citizens the opportunity to explore the hidden treasures of the commonwealth," Tomalis said.  "Governor Corbett and the First Lady recognize the tremendous benefits of public libraries and believe that it's important for Pennsylvanians to have access to research and reading materials."

The State Library, located on the first floor of the Forum Building, 607 South Drive, Harrisburg, has much to offer all Pennsylvania citizens, from genealogists to student researchers.  The library is home to more than 1 million titles and miles of microfilm, archives of Pennsylvania newspapers dating back to 1719, and the Rare Collections Library that houses materials from the 15 th century.

Sufficient free parking is available in the area surrounding the Forum Building.
