Bridgeville Public Library officials plan to meet with their counterparts in South Fayette soon to see if the two groups can share or improve services for their patrons.

The two sides are still trying to figure out a date when they can meet to discuss whether there are mutual benefits to combine activities, collections, accounting services or events.

Allegheny County Library Association Executive Director Marilyn Jenkins attended Bridgeville library’s Tuesday night board meeting to see if her organization could facilitate a meeting or the merging of some services. She said other libraries across Allegheny County are in the process of submitting proposals on how to improve their own programming or change working relationships with neighboring organizations.

“We’re looking for any projects that you think will help the libraries move forward,” Jenkins said. “Sometimes local libraries don’t have the ability to know what someone is doing on the other side of the county.”

In Bridgeville’s case, its library board is looking to see what it can do with neighboring South Fayette. Jenkins noted that Bridgeville’s new library, which opened in January 2011, route: {:controller=>"articles", :action=>"show", :id=>"new-bridgeville-library-nearly-completed"} --> . The workers hope to bring in residents who have never seen the new facility in person.
