PA Forward: Libraries Move PA Forward Press Conference

The Learning Commons is a proud participant in the Pennsylvania Library Association's PA Forward initiative. Learn more about that initiative on this guide.

Press Conference

The Learning Commons participated in the Libraries Move PA Forward press conference in the Capitol on October 17, 2018. We presented a poster of our Star Library journey, and we were particularly proud to present as we are the second academic library in PA to earn a gold star. As a result of the press conference, the PA House and Senate introduced resolutions and Governor Wolf signed a proclamation to make October 17, 2018, Libraries Move PA Forward Day. We also advocated for state funding of libraries.
