  • A fond farewell

    A fond farewell

    With extraordinary gratitude and quite a bit of sadness, and after almost ten years as the Executive Director of this fantastic organization, I have decided to step down in early October... On a sunny and warm day in my 20s, I participated in my first PNA event: Garage Sale Day. As I happily wandered among sale booths and kids’ lemonade stands, I was overwhelmed with the kindness, the smiles, and the community I saw. It is seared in my memory as one of my favorite days ever and it still is my favorite PNA “holiday” each year! (For years, the couch we found graced our front porch.) I thought “working at PNA would be a dream job!” as its mission to build community resonated so deeply with me. ...

    More green in Greenwood: Alice Ball Park opens June 14

    The new Alice Ball Park—originally known by the community as “Library Park”—is nearing completion and slated to open June 14 in conjunction with the PhinneyWood Art Walk that evening. An official ribbon-cutting ceremony with City officials and community leaders, music, entertainment, and food is planned.

    Sierra: Welcome to the Library of Things

    By Amanda Castleman. "Need a dehydrator to preserve a bumper crop of peaches? An aerator to reduce your compost pile’s pungency? How about a cello, a carpet cleaner, or even camping equipment? Nowadays, you can turn to social enterprises that facilitate the sharing of goods among members, which saves money and space. They also eliminate pollution from the manufacturing and delivery of items not used in regular rotation." ...This article from Sierra Club's magazine features the PNA Tool Library....
