This interpretation of State law is affirmed by the Pennsylvania Department of Education, Office of Commonwealth Libraries, in their book A Handbook For Public Library Trustees, Fourth Edition, March 1993 (Reprinted September 1998), Page 38:


“The Sunshine Law


        The Pennsylvania law on open meetings (the so-called “Sunshine Law”), Act 84 of 1986, requires public libraries which have been designated by municipalities as their agencies to make meetings of the boards of directors open to the public. Meeting notices must be advertised in the newspaper at least three days prior to the meeting and also posted at the principal office of the agency or wherever the meeting will take place.”
