Unique Pathways Presents Art Wehrhahn

 Thursday, August 24     5:30 pm

Art Wehrhahn grew up in Hoboken, NJ. He attended Jersey City State to pursue a degree in science. In parallel to his educational goals, he also tackled some professional goals.  

After high school he worked for a year and a half for AT&T in their drafting department. From there, he went to work for his uncle who had a film storage business where he stayed for ten years. While at Fort Lee Film Storage he had the opportunity to work on a large collection of nitrate films for The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA). This became a full-time job. First, he worked as a contract employee for MoMA and then became the Film Vault Manager. He learned film preservation on the job and by attending workshops and joining professional organizations, where he gained knowledge from others in the profession.

    One of the greatest achievements of his 44 years while at MoMA was working on the planning and construction of The Celeste Bartos Film Preservation Center, in Hamlin, PA which opened in June, 1996.  The facility houses MoMA’s valuable films in climate-controlled conditions to prevent any further deterioration. Art managed the Film Preservation Center for 18 years until his retirement.

Art’s hobbies include fishing, fly tying, camping, hiking, astronomy, and model railroading.

Join us to hear about the evolution of film during Art’s career.


Olivia Scartelli is Recipient of  Murphy Fine Arts Award


The 2017 Marjorie Murphy Award for Service to the Wallenpaupack Area High School Fine Arts program has been presented to 2017 graduate Olivia “Liv” Scartelli.

Sponsored by the Hawley Public Library, the award was created by the Library’s Board of Directors in 2006 to honor Mrs. Murphy, a Library founder and long-time Board vice president, who has for many decades been very active in multiple community organizations.

Scartelli is a gifted artist and, throughout her high school career, worked to sell her artworks in order to help fund her goal of extensive European travel. As a result, she has been able to, over the last two summers, visit a total of 11 European countries and 16 European cities.  Along the way she has acquired Spanish and French language skills in addition to developing a serious interest in a career devoted to Human Rights and Conflict Resolution.

Commenting on her keen interest in volunteerism, Liv reports, “I am a proud member of Volunteers in Paupack, Friends of Rachel, FBLA, SADD, Show Choir, Chamber Choir, and the Varsity Basketball Team along with serving as Foreign Language Club president and Student Council Vice President.”

“I have always made a conscious effort to give back to my community and have dedicated my time to the organizations of Wally Lake Fest, Wayne/Pike County United Way, the Honesdale Food Pantry, the Hawley Library, UNICEF, and my very own WAHS Senior Crown Project.”

Come fall, Scartelli will be enrolled at Penn State’s University Park Campus and plans to major in Global and International Studies. She is the daughter of Ralph and Robin Scartelli of Paupack.

"A library outranks any one thing a community can do to benefit its people. It is a never-failing spring in the desert." ~ Andrew Carnegie

Your gift will help the library serve its community in essential ways--through reading, technology, programs and comfortable space for all ages.
