ALTOONA, Pa. (WTAJ) — It may be National Library Week, but the Altoona Area Public Library is celebrating all month long.

The library will be holding events throughout April, including after school Lego cCub, family movie nights, and even a mission to Mars this weekend for children. After a pandemic and suffering extensive water damage, the library is ready to bring people back in.

“We just want people to reconnect with the library, you know, rediscover the library and what we have to offer, Director Jennifer Knisely said. “We’re really putting everything into this month and the celebration.”
