New Florence Community Library has been serving the surrounding communities since 1964. Our service area reaches the northeastern parts of Westmoreland County and southern Indiana County, including Seward Borough, St. Clair Township, New Florence Borough, and West Wheatfield Township. Today our collection reaches about 19,000 items, and we are growing within.
In 1963 the library began as a single room with 300 volumes in the basement of the elementary school.
In 1968 the building we use today was built and the collection moved over.
In 1991 there was a renovation adding a new children’s department.
