Our partnership with Heinz Center Affiliates and the Whitehall Public Library is based on a mutual community mission.

“Museums and libraries are kind of a partnership, and we're both hubs for our communities. But in addition to that, we also promote and encourage literacy, education, history and culture. So this is very It’s a natural fit.”
