Coming Events

Welcome to McKellar Township Public Library!


McKellar Library

Revitalization Project

We have applied for a Commonwell L.E.A.F. grant to improve our library! One of the key criteria is public support. Please consider giving a comment of support on the Commonwell website. Go to:

Then click on the [Support a Project] tab near the top. Then scroll down to find “McKellar Public Library Revitalization Project”. Click on the “Add your Support” button. There, you can read about our planned project and click on “Add a Story”, “Add a Comment”, “Submit a Photo” or “Share on Facebook”. A Library Staff member will be happy to help you do this from a library computer if you prefer.

Thanks for supporting your public library!
