Description

Opened in 1901, the Vandergrift Public Library is a full service library serving the residents of Vandergrift and surrounding communities.

Vandergrift was created in the 1890s as the quintessential company town when the Apollo Iron & Steel Company decided that providing workers with good housing and a good urban environment would make them more loyal and productive. To that end, they hired the nation's preeminent landscape architectural firm, Olmsted, Olmsted & Eliot, to design what became Vandergrift.

The library is located in the annex to what is now known as the Casino Theatre building, which originally served as the town hall and municpal center.
