SLIPPERY ROCK UNIVERSITY LIBRARY OPENS COLLECTION TO RESIDENTS OF 16057 ZIP CODE

          SLIPPERY ROCK, Pa. – Slippery Rock University’s Bailey Library has opened its half-million volume collection to all residents of Slippery Rock Borough and Slippery Rock Township – those living in the 16057 ZIP code.

          "Our purpose is to serve," says Philip Tramdack, library director, "and what better way to serve our community than to open our collection to anyone in the borough or township who is interested." Tramdack points to the library's extensive collection of children's books as well as its vast holdings of government documents.

          The library will issue borrower cards to all Slippery Rock residents applying, he explains, noting the library is strong in research and reference materials and has a good selection of both fiction and non-fiction works.

          "Earlier this year we opened the library shelves to school teachers in the region, and, noting that success we decided to expand by allowing the general public from the borough and township to borrow," Tramdack explains.

          Those wishing to make use of the borrowing privilege need only fill out a borrower's application in person at the circulation desk. Those under the age 18 need a parent's authorization.
