Monessen Veteran Banners

Ron Chromulak, Chairman of the Monessen Veterans Council and Dave Zilka, Director of Monessen Public Library & Cultural Center, have announced that the Monessen Veterans Council is partnering with Monessen Public Library to sponsor the Monessen Military Banner Tribute.  Through the program, a living or deceased veteran or an active duty member of the military can have their photograph displayed on a banner hung from a utility pole in the City of Monessen.

The cost of producing and displaying the banner is $100 per banner.  The banners will be hung as soon as they are received and taken down after Labor Day.  They will be used for years to come in the city and displayed from Memorial Day through Labor Day.

Applications for the banners will be taken at Monessen Public Library & Cultural Center.  Bring a photo of the person, some general information and a check for $100 made out to “Monessen Public Library”.  The Library is closed on Fridays and Sundays.  Persons living out of the area can call the Library at 724-684-4750 for further information. 

Applications can be found online at www.troopbanners.com/Monessen. The application and scanned photo can be emailed to the Library at dzilka@hotmail.com , with the check mailed  to Monessen Public Library & Cultural Center, 326 Donner Avenue, Monessen, PA  15062.  Once the check is received, the banner order will be processed.  Small yard banners are also available.

Storytime in the A.M.

Starting July 8, a new daytime Storytime program will be held at the Library on Wednesday mornings in July and August, from 10:30 AM to 11:30 AM, for children aged 3 to 7. Old favorites and new stories will be read to the children at each session.

The children will be encouraged to explore the many books available in the Children’s Room for their enjoyment. Registration is not necessary. This program will not be the same as the Monday evening Storytimes, and will not be part of the “Every Hero Has a Story” Summer Reading event.

Library Summer Hours

Summer hours have started at the Library! The only change is on Saturdays. The Library will close at 2 PM each Saturday, instead of 4 PM. Please remember, all computers are turned off fifteen minutes prior to closing.

We will be closed on Saturday, July 4, 2015, for the observance of Independence Day.
