Support Your Library


Autumn marks the kick off of the CC Mellor Memorial Library and Edgewood Community House 2016 Annual Appeal.  Letters appeared in resident mail boxes in October.  The Annual Appeal is an important fundraiser for the Library; last year’s appeal raised just over of $40,500 or 12% of the annual budget.  Your gift ensures that CCM has plenty of new materials on the shelves, provides year-round programming for children, and lets us operate a Library in Edgewood and a Branch in Forest Hills which are open 74 hours a week.

You can make your donation to CC Mellor by returning the tear of portion of the letter with your check or by going to www.ccmellorlibrary.org and making a secure online donation via Paypal, or contribute by using the annual appeal form.

Your support makes it possible for CC Mellor Memorial Library to continue to be a great community asset.  Thank you for your generosity.


Library Fitness Programs

C. C. Mellor: Your fitness partner!

CC Mellor Library has recently partnered with Allegheny County’s new health program Live Well Allegheny, embracing the concept of living well which includes physical health, mental wellness, personal and community safety, prevention and preparedness, and much more. In addition to our large current collection of print and online materials on health and fitness, CCM offers these three weekly programs to improve one’s health.

Mind and Body Adult Classes

Join us on Monday and Wednesday mornings from 9:00-9:45 am for exercises that include easy dance moves, Pilates-based stretching and strength building, and yoga inspired movement. The classes will help you improve core strength and overall flexibility, tune up your cardiovascular system, reduce stress, improve posture, and feel better.

The cost is $5.00 a class or $25 for 6 sessions. You’ll need comfortable loose stretchy clothing, athletic footwear or sturdy rubber soled shoes, and a thick mat. The program runs through December 9 and is led by Edgewood resident Rebecca Taksel. Call the Library to register or email rebeccataksel@hotmail.com.

Creative Movement

This parent-led program is offered every Friday at 10:30 am. Children to age 6 participate in bend and stretching exercises, learn yoga positions, and have great fun. No sign up is necessary, just drop in for this half hour program.

Wisewalk Continues

Even though most of the leaves have fallen and the temperatures have dropped a bit the hearty Wisewalkers of CCM continue their Tuesday and Thursday walks in Frick Park’s Fern Hollow. We meet in the parking lot at the base of Lancaster Avenue at 8:30 am for a one-hour walk. In December, Wisewalk will begin at 9:00 am. New walkers receive a t-shirt and a pedometer. Join us!
