How Libraries Help Move PA Forward


Pa forward website

In the past year, you may have noticed the PA Forward ® Logo on many of our flyers and on the Huntingdon Valley Library website.

PA Forward is the Pennsylvania Library Association’s 21st Century Literacies Initiative. Libraries are the key to powering progress and elevating the quality of life in Pennsylvania by fueling the types of knowledge essential to success: Basic Literacy, Information Literacy, Civic and Social Literacy, Health Literacy, and Financial Literacy.

We are excited to announce the Huntingdon Valley Library has achieved Silver Star status and we are very close to becoming a Gold Star Library! In order to become a Gold Star Library, a library must first earn Bronze, and a Silver Star in each of the 5 Literacies.
