Community Center & Library

 

It has begun! How we spent our summer stay-cation: The new Middle Smithfield Community & Cultural Center that will house the Library of the Smithfields branch of the Eastern Monroe Public Library, as well as a host of other things: little local museum, American Red Cross Eastern Pennsylvania Region certified emergency shelter, display space for Pocono Arts Council , rain gardens and landscaping in conjunction with the Brodhead Watershed Association and the Penn State Master Gardeners ,  Monroe County Beekeepers Association, and more. AND, we’ll be incorporating an icon of the area, the old Mosier’s Dairy Farm which we’ve de-constructed, into the new building, so that Mosier’s can live on.   We thank the Mosier family for their help in this endeavor.

Community Creates Collaboration!  Thanks to so many in the community who’ve helped — stay tuned for more information about the community building the community space.  You can read more about the project in past issues of our newsletter.
