CLAYSBURG — The Claysburg Area Public Library has received generous donations of two organizations.

The Lions Sight Conservation Foundation of Blair County donated $3,000 to the library for large-print books and audio books for the visually impaired.

Audio books are also popular with people who commute a distance to their job.

The PA Skill Charitable Foundation donated $3,000 to increase the collection of books and resources.

The library would like to thank these organizations for their public service to the community through their donations.

The Pennsylvania legislators are currently working on a budget for January through June 2021.

Library representatives encourage those who use the public libraries to voice their appreciation for their services to their representatives. Letters or emails of support are always helpful.

While the library is still limited to the number of people coming into the library, it is open 45 hours per week.

Hours are 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday , Tuesday and Thursday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday.
