Organizational Information

Vision, Mission and/or Purpose of Organization

Mission Statement: Building strong connections between our patrons and the world!

History of Organization

Burrell Township Library started out as a house library. In September 1977, it became a reading room on Main street across from the Black Lick Fire Hall through the Community Development Corporation. Various leaders stepped forward and enabled the library to meet the evolving needs of the community. Edward Augsburger took on the original library director role. As services and items outgrew the space, librarian Louise Krajic ushered in a new location at 190 Park Drive in 1991. In early 2018, Burrell Township Library suffered devastating damage to their building. The library has re-opened as of September 5th, 2019 inside the building of the Burrell Township Supervisors. The library has been serving the community for over 40 years. As the library continues to change and grow, it will continue to serve and reflect the community around it.
