During Youngsville's Route 6 Heritage Community meeting two weeks ago, County Planning Director Dan Glotz announced that a Pennsylvania Byways Designation of Old Route 6 is being sought for the multi counties of Tioga, Potter, McKean and Warren. Once the legislative designation is established, the new designation could speed the bike/ hike trail process between Warren and Youngsville. Mr. Glotz said, "Not only does it tie Youngsville's main street to the Old Route 6 byway route but, it is a lot more scenic on old Route 6 rather than the four lane highway."
Fit and healthy

All of the students in 2nd grade at Youngsville Elementary/Middle School recently read a story called Big Bushy Mustache by Gary Soto. “This book about a lost and found mustache celebrates the love between a son and his father, and is perfect for any child who wants to grow up to be just like dad.” The 2nd graders had fun wearing a big, bushy mustache to lunch. Some even managed to wear it for the entire lunch period.

Third grade students at Youngsville Elementary/Middle School are working to become junior architects. These students are exploring the uses of geometry and measurement in the world of architecture by designing and creating blueprints for their very own clubhouses.
Lots of learning is taking place in the classroom as these designers find perimeters and areas of rectangles and triangles using geo-boards. On graph paper, the students will design two-dimensional clubhouses and then build a three-dimensional model of their blueprints. After that, they will solve problems related to constructing and decorating the clubhouses.
There are still 18 out of 25 "wish-list" books from January & February that the Youngsville Public Library (YPL) is hoping community members will donate to its shelves. "We're hoping that community members who have already purchased any of our January or February 'Wish-List' titles for their own enjoyment will kindly donate their hardcover copy to our library," stated Library Director Kristy Wallace. "The purchase of seven of our Wish-list books has been made possible due to memorial donations, for which we are very grateful. Sadly, we just do not have the money to purchase more than 5 New York Times bestseller books per month. In previous years we were able to budget for 10-12 bestsellers, which is why we are hoping for help from our community members."
"Passing along a NY Times bestseller book to us is really a great investment for your community," Wallace said. "When you figure that each new book gets read by at least 15 patrons per month that really adds up."
To avoid duplications of book titles, please contact the library during regular business hours prior to buying a specific item from the book wish-list (as another community member may already have pledged or purchased the item on our behalf). Due to limited shelf space, we can only keep one copy of any given title. Business hours are Monday and Tuesday noon-7:30 pm, Wednesday 10 a.m.-5 p.m., and Friday noon-4 pm. Call 563-7670 for more information.
If you have a book to donate from this list below please contact the library prior to March 26th so that we can adjust our circulation records prior to the end of the 1st quarter.-thank you
