Message To Libraries

Hello PA Forward Star Libraries!

We are halfway through our first year and several of you have steadily been working through the process, achieving various star levels. Congratulations!

To date, we have awarded nearly 240 stars to libraries throughout Pennsylvania! This includes 64 bronze, 152 silver and 22 gold stars. We are on our way to maximizing our shine across this commonwealth!

For those of you who haven’t had a chance to start working on your action items yet, there’s still time to get started! If you need help with program ideas, remember we have the PA Forward Commons found at Take a look for some programming ideas to help you achieve your stars.

Once you begin receiving those stars, also be sure to toot your own horns! Post, share and tag to your social media pages using the following hashtags:


And feel free to tag PA Forward and the PA Library Association in your postings. We can be found on FB at @PALibraries and @PAForwardPennsylvaniaLibraries. We can also be found on Twitter at @PAForward5 and @PALibraryAssoc.

Remember, if you have any questions or need assistance with anything, the PA Forward Training Team is here to help. Send an email to and someone will be in touch with you asap.

Again, congratulations as you work to achieve your star status!
