S.W. Smith Memorial Public Library – Port Allegany, PA
Eleanor C. Smith officially founded the S.W. Smith Memorial Public Library in honor of her husband Samuel W. Smith who was a long-time advocate for public library service in Port Allegany.
 
Shortly after Mr. Smith’s death in 1925, Mrs. Smith hired Andy Anderson & Son to construct the library building on her Church Street property. In 1930, Mrs. Smith donated the property to the Port Allegany Borough, and in 1937 she set up a trust fund for the library at First National Bank of Port Allegany. The library moved to its new location and new building in 2012.
 
Free Parking. Free Wi-Fi. A small community room is available for rent.
Library Director: Mary Grace Collier-Kisler.
