Meet our Libraries

It's great that I can get books from anywhere in the county and pick them up at my local library!

-Leanna Bird

The Cambria County Library System consists of 14 independent libraries in Cambria County, Pennsylvania. Each library in our federated system features its own programs, mission, and Board of Directors. 

One library card provides access to all 14 libraries. Patrons can use their card at any member library location to borrow items or enjoy programs. Our libraries work together to allow patrons to request an item from one library, and pick it up at another.

Our libraries are proud to work with the Cambria County Commissioners to provide outstanding services in our county. Our system headquarters are located in Johnstown, PA.
