Outreach to Childcare Facilities
Centre County Library’s Outreach Program offers the following library services to accredited preschools, home daycare, and daycare centers within our service area:
Storytime programs follow Pennsylvania learning standards that support emergent literacy skills through songs, games, rhyming, activities and stories. Programs run approximately 30 minutes and each facility is visited bi-weekly or monthly, depending on the needs of the facility.
Rotatating Book Collections, consisting of 15 books that support each facility’s curriculum, is refreshed each visit and may be checked out onto the facility/group library card with no fines.
If your childcare facility would like to participate in our Outreach opportunity please contact Rhonda Beard, Outreach Assistant: rbeard@centreco
Outreach to Elderly Care Facilities
Our outreach service coordinator delivers baskets of donated Large Print books to participating elderly care facilities each month. Residents can borrow books and put them back, or they can add book from their own collection to share with others. Baskets are refilled with new titles every month. In addition, a monthly book club has been started at several of the elderly care facilities.
For more information please contact Rhonda Beard at firstname.lastname@example.org
or Laura Sarge at email@example.com or 814-355-1516 x206.
Centre County Library’s Bookmobile offers library services to townships throughout the county that are farthest from our branch locations. We revise the schedule of stops periodically to meet the changing needs of our community.
Throughout the year, the Bookmobile participates in county parades, farmers markets, and touch-a-truck events. The Bookmobile is available on Fridays, by appointment only, for special event visits during the summer months.
For questions or to invite the Bookmobile to your summer event, please contact:
