ATLA History

In 1979, the Anderson Library Committee was formed to promote a new library branch in Anderson Township. With population rapidly growing, the Mt. Washington Branch, one of the busiest in the CHPL system, was no longer adequate to serve the needs of residents.

Once the library branch was built, The Committee evolved and was renamed The Anderson Township Library Association or ATLA. The organization's single goal is to supplement funding for programming and materials at the Mt. Washington and Anderson branch libraries through annual book sales.

Books are collected from community donations and library discards, then sorted, priced, and stored for a large sale during the summer. The ATLA sale has expanded to include puzzles, gifts, a raffle, CDs, and DVDs. In the fall, we hold a special holiday sale of nearly-new and gently-used items.
