Ms Anne New
Anne New is our director and librarian. Ms. New comes to Castle Shannon
from the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh. She is a graduate of St. Mary of the
Mount High School and Duquesne University. She has a Masters degree in
Library Science from the University of Pittsburgh and has been working in
libraries for over 30 years.
Ms. New has been at our library for four years and she is doing an excellent job.
She is a many-talented lady. In addition to hosting book discussions, puppet
shows, and poetry forums, she also does musical skits about the Civil War. She
plays guitar and entertains the adults and children with many programs of
Irish and Appalachian music.
Our community is most fortunate to have such a talented and caring employee
in our borough.
