  • The Library recognzied for a number of years the need for a new facility. Many years of hard work and planning have gone into this great new library facility. Please click here to view a copy of the "Pocono Mountain Public Library Building Program Report - Executive Summary" dated June 25, 2006 by Rich Bowra, Library Building Consultant. This document outlines and explains the library's need for a new facility and the justification for the plans we designed.

    Please contact the Library Director, Ann Shincovich, if you have any questions or comments about PMPL's new library building project. The Library Board of Trustees and the Director are very proud of the building we have planned for the community, and we hope to create excitement for our patrons who themselves recognized the need for an expanded facility.
