Books, movies and more in a PA library (Access PA Catalog)
Libraries across Pennsylvania have collaborated to create this shared catalog of their collections. PA libraries also lend materials to other libraries. If the item you are looking for is located at a library that is not close to you, contact your local library to ask about an "interlibrary" loan. Because libraries acquire new materials daily, listings are updated on a regular basis. If you do not find what you are looking for this time, check back again at a later time.
