Message from the Director

Annual Report . 2

Throughout our 142 year history, the Sewickley Public Library has remained true to our mission of creating a center for lifelong learning. No matter the format -- written, audio, visual, or digital, our patrons have opportunities to challenge their minds, explore new cultures and enjoy the works authors, illustrators, educators, and entertainers. Library supporters, which include all of our donors and volunteers, were pivotal in 2014 to enhancing our services and collections. We strive to provide superior library service to all residents by building on established traditions and providing the best in new practices. As you read through this Annual Report, our 2014 accomplishments demonstrate that the library continues to thrive and is a vital center of leaning, communication, culture and enjoyment. Thank you for your support!

Mission Statement The Mission of the Sewickley Public Library is to serve as a center of lifelong learning by providing free access to informational, educational, cultural and recreational library resources that address the interests and needs of the children and adults in the Quaker Valley region. The Library seeks to fulfill its mission by providing access to the world of ideas and imagination through its educational and informational resources, enrichment programs, welcoming environment and competent staff and volunteers. Adopted by the Board of Directors, July 12, 2004

2014 Highlights 

The Teen and Children’s Department received $1,500 from the Kiwanis to provide STEAM programming. STEAM engages students in integrated learning as they explore the world around them, create innovative solutions to problems and communicate their results while learning Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math.

As part of the library’s Strategic Plan, the library embarked on freshening up and reimaging the library’s website and publications. The logo was spruced up with color (green and blue) and the tagline, “Great Stories Start Here” has been incorporated into all external communications. The library also initiated a program for collecting stories from patrons regarding their personal reasons and satisfaction with the library.

2014 Featured Accomplishment

Annual Report . 3

Dustin Shilling, Systems Librarian, undertook and completed a monumental task this year; we call it the Sewickley Herald Digitization Project. In cooperation with Trib Total Media and the Eddie and Diane Marx Family, the Sewickley Herald, since its inception, is now available for anyone to search from our website. History buffs, genealogists and plain curious folks can search from any computer anywhere in the world 103 years of local news, sports, advertising and more. Dustin researched and accomplished the many facets of this complex project. Trib Total Media granted the library permissions to publish the Sewickley Herald from our website. Due to the untimely death of Diane Marx, the library received a significant number of Memorial Donations in her memory. Since Diane was an avid newspaper reader, Eddie, her husband, and her daughters agreed that funding the digitization of the Herald would be an appropriate way to honor Diane. Sewickley Public Library is the first library in the western PA to digitize its neighborhood newspaper. It’s also the first newspaper that Trib Total Media owns that has been digitized. Eddie Marx and Mya Koch, Trib Total Media

Featured Programs Mini-Golf Workshop & Family Mini Golf in the Library We held 3 sessions for children to come and build their own mini-golf course holes. We made a total of 9 golf holes with 3 kids on a team working together to build 1 hole. The courses were laid out in the library and parents and children were able to play all the mini-golf hole courses during a special family program. Life-Size Candy Land Librarian Charlene Mitchell built decoration pieces and board game layout to fill our Community Room. These included: a plum tree, lollipop trees, peanuts, gum drops, chocolate bars, ice cream cones, and King’s Castle. The children were their own piece in the game, pulling a card and moving to the correct spot.

Annual Report . 12

Message from the Board President 2014 was another successful year for your Sewickley Public Library. Youth and teen programs continue to grow. It is amazing to see that over 500 students participated in the Battle of the Books. Our librarians are instilling the love of reading and books in the youth of Sewickley. Adult programming expands to include everything from computer classes, to photography, book clubs and meditation classes. At the same time our statistics show that the traditional activities of checking out books, DVDs, CDs and periodicals continues to be strong with nearly 300,000 items checked out in 2014. Our staff and volunteers can truly be proud of the success of this library. We are grateful for our relationship with the Quaker Valley School District, Regional Asset District, and the Friends of the Library, all of whom provide considerable funding to our operations. Finally, thank you to our patrons and those who donate to the library; we could not offer the diverse collections or stimulating programs that we do without your support.
