"Canary Library Program" — What a Program Idea:
The Greene County Commissioners and the Department of Recreation are partnering with the Greene County Library System to pilot a new summer reading program called “Canary Library."

Throughout the summer, carts containing library books for all ages will be available at each of the three Greene County pool sites – Alpha Aquatic Center in Waynesburg, Carmichaels Pool in Carmichaels and Mon View Pool in Greensboro. Children and adults alike will be encouraged to take a book, read and enjoy it, then either return it to the pool or keep it – all for free and without a library card. The carts will host a variety of book interests for adult and child readers.

Pictured are Pam Blaker (left) and Debbie Bristor representing the Carmichaels Crusaders at the Carmichaels pool. The book cart is part of the Canary Library. The idea behind it is that while you are enjoying the County-operated pools this summer, you can take a book and/or leave a book. This service is FREE to everyone. If you would like to donate money or books toward the project, please call Pam Blaker at 724-852-5323. FMI, click here to read the canary library news release.
