      I remember doing homework and school assignments at The Eva K. Bowlby Public Library in Waynesburg, PA.

      After 30-some years, I had a chance to revisit this wonderfully quaint converted Victorian house that sits across the street from a well-maintained small town park.

      Beyond the park is Waynesburg’s prestigious university.

      So


      it’s an easy walk to the welcoming front porch that begs you to sit, relax and read while swinging in the wicker swing.

      Its many rooms have been allocated to the library’s collections of books, films and other media.

      Elegant, paneled woodwork throughout the multi-storied building gives it such a depth of ...


      • history and richness.

        Marble fireplaces and hard wood floors give the whole library the feel of many smaller old-world reading rooms.

        Established in the 1940s,this little library is a memory for many students from the area and visitors, too.

        It was a pleasure to visit again and find that the library

        staff is as friendly and courteous as ever, and that the information and books provided have kept abreast of times and content.

        If you’re into Americana and places off the beaten path, this little library is a great place to visit and enjoy.

        It’s nestled in Greene County in the Southwestern corner of Pennsylvania.
