Lilly-Washington Public Library’s 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.
