WHAT IS PA FORWARD?

PA FORWARD will benefit Pennsylvania's libraries and all the Pennsylvanians who use them by: 

  • Making library services available for all Pennsylvania citizens
  • Strengthening state-supported library services and leveraging greater local and private support
  • Having an integrated library system that will not only lower local costs, but improve resource-sharing for citizens
  • Providing more databases at a lower cost and a better statewide delivery system
  • Bolstering the recognized link between library service and workforce development
  • Raising the profile and importance of libraries and librarians 

Libraries are encouraged to provide programs and services to meet the types of knowledge essential to success: Basic Literacy, Information Literacy, Civic and Social Literacy, Health Literacy, and Financial Literacy.
