Meadville Public Library

Goal: $25,000.00

Specific Need

For some time, the Meadville Public Library has been in need of a new roof. Our building dates to the 1920s, and the current roof dates to the 1970s - fifty years ago! As with any old building, routine repairs are no longer enough to halt the wear and tear of the seasons. Storms and winter weather frequently knock down many shingles at once, and leaks in the roof are an ever-growing possibility. This year, we will be able to finally replace it, although previous delays on the project have made it more costly as wear and tear slowly accrued. With inflation increasing, the roof project has also come in at a greater cost than originally anticipated. With your help, we hope to complete the replacement of our roof in 2022 and keep your library in good condition for many more years to come. 


The Meadville Public Library is an organization dedicated to providing an environment of lifelong learning, self-improvement, and self-expression.


The Meadville Public Library is proud to serve our community in a multitude of ways, by offering these services all under our roof:

  • FREE access to thousands of materials, including books, DVDs and audiobooks, free WiFi Hotspots for on-the-go internet, laptop rentals, a tool library, and children’s games and toys 

  • automatic renewals and a fine-free overdue book policy, making checkouts easier and more accessible than ever

  • free in-house WiFi and computer access, plus printing, copying, faxing services and more

  • programs for adults and kids - including puppet shows, summer reading contests, and demonstrations by local presenters on a variety of subjects - (we are always open to suggestions! As always, we are interested in learning what the public would like to learn more about) 

  • year-round children’s and programming, story times, and activities 

  • young adult clubs, programs, and a freshly-updated young adult reading room 

  • community space complete with meeting areas, room to study, and plenty of comfortable, versatile seating
