The Panther Valley Public Library in Lansford is a diamond hidden in the heart of the Panther Valley.
It is filled with hundreds of books for all ages, computers with Internet connection, and a friendly staff comprised of volunteers.
Many know the library is there, but lack of funding almost forced this gem to close earlier this year.
But things have been changing for the better for the library.
Over the last few months, many area businesses and individuals have given their time and money to help keep this community asset open for business.
