Citizens Library & District Center


Citizens Library in Washington, Pennsylvania, was founded in 1870 by Francis J. LeMoyne, a renowned medical doctor, philanthropist, and abolitionist. Before the construction of the library’s permanent home on South College Street in 1965, the library was located in Washington’s Town Hall (which no longer stands).
