Commissioners Celebrate 150th Anniversary of Warren Public Library

October 11, 2023

WARREN, Pa. – The Warren County Commissioners celebrated 150 years of the Warren Public Library at Wednesday’s meeting.

The library first opened on Oct. 16, 1873 and in 1882, thanks to the generous contribution of Thomas Struthers moved to the Struthers Library Theatre location until 1916.

In 1916, the library moved to its current location. They recently underwent an extensive renovation, including a new teen space. The County Commissioners were a part of that, making a $25,000 donation as part of the project.

“The library is a very vibrant institution due to the staff, board members and everyone involved,” said Commissioner Jeff Eggleston. “They are dedicated to serving the community with an environment of discovery and fun. It’s an institution that serves everyone.”

The library has a number of exciting events coming up, which you can read more about here.

“We really appreciate your leadership and your presence,” said Commissioner Tricia Durbin.
