Housed in a beautiful Georgian-style building constructed of local sandstone, this library serves communities in Ligonier Valley, an area in rural Westmoreland County.
Ligonier Valley is situated around the the confluence of two river tributaries, Mill Creek and Loyalhanna Creek.
Although the current building opened in 1968, the library dates to 1945 when it began with a mere 200 books. A children's wing was added in 2000 encorporating the library's former garden. The decorative, English-style brick wall that had enclosed the garden was saved and incorporated into the design of the new addition. The original sundial, mounted on the wall, was also kept and used as a design focal point in the wing.
The Ligonier Valley Library is a popular place for various community activities, along with programming for all ages.
