Important Information

  • Three “Little Book Houses” have been installed in the township in Sheldon Park, Village Green, and on Pond Street in Natrona.  The houses make books available for residents to borrow and return, on the honor system.  Residents are able to drop off books to be shared with the community.  The little houses were built by students at the Forbes Road Career & Technology Center in Monroeville.  The project was the idea of Heather Bigney, principal of the Highlands Early Childhood Center. Tarentum, Brackenridge, and Harrison Township participated in the project.  Robin Bergstrom, Harrison Commissioner, coordinated the placement in Harrison Township and said “What we’re trying to do is catch areas where kids can’t walk to the library easily.
