History

The Westmoreland Library Network (WLN) advocates for 24 member public libraries in Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania. Formed in 1993, these libraries joined together to form the Westmoreland Library Network for the purpose of obtaining funding for public library services from County Government and to receive additional state support as a federated system.

Mission

The Westmoreland Library Network’s mission is to ensure that the county’s public libraries are able to provide the highest quality library service to all residents of Westmoreland County.

With our integrated library system, over 108,000 registered borrowers have access to more than 954,000 items throughout the system with one county-wide library card. 24/7 remote access enables all county residents to browse library collections, place holds and conduct online research from their homes, businesses or schools any time of the day or night.

Governing Board Functions

WLN is governed by a seven-member Board of Directors. Five of the seven Board members also serve as trustees for WLN member libraries, with the remaining two appointed by the Westmoreland County Commissioners as at-large members. The WLN Board is viewed as a key ingredient in ensuring the long-term sustainability of the Westmoreland Library Network. Their role is to:

  • Set and review policy
  • Provide financial oversight
  • Initiate and approve fundraising efforts
  • Provide strategic leadership

Board meetings are open to the public and are held the fourth Wednesday of: September, November, January, March, May and July at 7:00 pm at our headquarters located at GreenForge, 226 Donohoe Rd Ste 202, Greensburg, PA.
