Library announces moving schedule

The Western Allegheny Community Library has announced a grand opening at 9 a.m. Aug. 10 at its new location, 181 Bateman Road near the Imperial interchange of Routes 22/30.

After business hours on July 24, the library will close and begin moving out of the North Fayette Community Center, 8042 Old Steubenville Pike.

Tentative opening of the new facility is Aug. 5 for patrons in Findlay, North Fayette and Oakdale.

Plans for grand reopening ceremonies Aug. 10 include a ribbon- cutting, family-friendly activities and a pass-the-book event, in which a chain of people will line up and pass the last remaining book between the old and new buildings, less than a mile apart in North Fayette.

In May 2012, the library purchased the 14,500-square-foot former Amcom Office Systems building to more than triple its space for patrons in the West Allegheny School District.

Total cost of the project, including purchase and renovations, was estimated at the time to be $800,000.
