2019 Summer Quest!

Welcome to 2019 Summer Quest: A Universe of Stories!

Formerly Summer Reading, Summer Quest! is the summer events that are for children and teens. At our main library in Greensburg and our branch library in Youngwood, we will be exploring all things space this summer. Activities may include costume creation, group games, space-related  crafts, art projects, science and engineering experiments, and more. This year our fabulous children’s staff have worked hard to create over 70 free programs at both locations! If you have any questions, call 724-837-5620, ext 4 for our Greensburg location and 724-925-9350 for our Youngwood branch.
