New Arrivals at Leechburg Public Library

In February, Leechburg Public Library added fifteen new titles through generous donations from our patrons. The library strives to obtain reading material for readers of all ages and interests, so let us know what you like to read. If you make a general donation or in memory of a loved one, you can specify the kind of material you would like us to order.
Please be aware that we cannot order everything ever printed as our funds are limited. We can, however, get the materials you might need, including audio books, through the statewide Inter-Library Loan program. It is a system that works quite well for our patrons.
So, come read with us!
Currently, membership is free to residents of Leechburg, Gilpin Township and West Leechburg. All other areas pay $5 for lifetime access to the collection. Fines are still ten cents per book per work day. Please remember to return borrowed books and materials promptly. Patrons cannot borrow new books until all costs are met.
Please be warned: it is within our reach to prosecute for unreturned books and unpaid fines. Books are expensive to replace. If warranted, the case will be taken to the Leechburg Police and the District Magistrate’s Office, and can lead to up to $300.00 in fines plus all costs.
Please return the books and materials promptly and/or pay your fines.
