From the library's website

The LaVale Library opened on September 28, 1975. Located along the National Road, the first federally funded highway in the United States, the library is conveniently situated near shopping and dining facilities. The first LaVale Library opened on April 18, 1953 in a room at the LaVale Drugstore, and then moved in 1956 to a former State Police Barracks, both of which were also along National Highway. The present brick Colonial style building was built to serve the rapidly growing community in LaVale. The lot was donated by Mrs. Lelia Gould as part of the estate of Wallace McKaig, a generous benefactor of the Allegany County Library System.

The LaVale Library houses fiction and non-fiction books for adults, teens, and children, as well as magazines, newspapers, audio books, DVDs, music, video games, and large print materials. In addition, public computers and free internet access is available to all patrons of the library. Weekly Children's Programs are available.

There is a meeting room in the library for groups and organizations to use. Please contact a librarian for more information or to make a meeting room reservation.

The LaVale Library is the headquarters for the Allegany County Bookmobile.
