PA Forward and the State Library of Pennsylvania Present a Guide to Health Insurance Assistance

This site has been created in collaboration with the State Library.

PA Forward Health Literacy


The Pennsylvania Library Association’s 21st Century Literacies Initiative, PA Forward, was conceived to give voice to what the library community already knows, and what other states throughout the nation are also recognizing:

With the right support, libraries are ideally positioned to become the community centers of information, technology, and learning that will fuel educational and economic opportunity for all of our citizens.

Libraries have moved far beyond just being book repositories. They’re agile institutions serving real-life needs. Libraries can be key to powering progress and elevating the quality of life in PA by fueling the types of knowledge essential to success: Basic Literacy, Information Literacy, Civic and Social Literacy, Health Literacy, and Financial Literacy.

Listen to Glenn Miller discuss PA Forward with WITF-FM's Scott LaMar on Radio Smart Talk!
