Founded in 1930 and incorporated in 1943, the Donora Public Library serves the residents of a small but historic town south of Pittsburgh and just across the Washington County line.
Donora was incorporated in 1901 and takes its name by a combination of businessman and co-founder William H. Donner with that of Nora Mellon, the wife of his business associate, banker Andrew W. Mellon. The town's interesting history is spiced by being a meeting space for rebels called the Whiskey Insurrection in the 1790s.
The current facility was built in 1995. An attractive, contemporary redbrick building it is a welcoming place where members of the community enjoys a wide selection of reading/research material along with well-equipped computer work stations.
