 History

Starting in 1961, the Lilly-Washington area received library service
from the Cambria County bookmobile. Shortly thereafter concerned
residents of the community decided a permanent library was needed.
Clair McGonigle, Lilly Borough council president, offered the use of a
former band hall now owned by the council as the location for a library.
Lilly-Washington Public Library opened its doors April 26, 1963 with the
following staff:
Mrs. Hal Lytle, librarian; David Rodgers, assistant librarian;
Howard McIntosh, library consultant; Mrs. Elmer Neff, library aide;
Mrs. James Leap, library aide.
The library moved to its present quarters in the Lilly Area Medical
Clinic Building in 1978.
