    Senate panel to take up rewrite of Pa. library law

    It’s about time.

    Pennsylvania’s 50-year-old Library Code may soon be modernized.

    The state Senate’s Education Committee is due to hear today from a slate of experts about proposed changes to library regulations, reforms to account for current technology, and new standards for employees, collections, facilities and accessibility.

    E-book borrowing, perhaps?

    The bill is being sponsored by Senate Republican Leader Dominic Pileggi of Delaware County.

    A government report on Pennsylvania libraries issued in December recommended a slew of changes, including minimum levels of local funding and consolidation of services.
