The Laceyville Library had its beginnings as far back as 1910 when a group of citizens formed a “Shakespeare Club.” Later, books were exchanged among the members, and contributed books were loaned to others outside the club. In 1934, the Library Association was formed, and in 1937, the present-day library building was constructed, offering free reading material to the community. Today, the library strives to continue in this by providing reading materials, DVDs, audiobooks, magazines, and research materials to their patrons, as well as a public-use computer, free Wi-Fi, and copying and faxing services.
The Laceyville Library offers story time events for children, craft classes, and informational seminars on various topics, along with an ongoing book sale.
The library has dedicated children’s and teen’s sections and offers books appealing to all ages.
