“I’ve been on the board at the library for 40 years. It used to be on top of the hardware store. We do a lot of great programs for kids here. Tail-wagging tutors, where the kids can practice reading with a dog. It’s nice because they don’t get nervous, and the dogs are so sweet. My great grandson comes every week, and as soon as we walk in the door, the dog [Lacey] comes running for him.”

Erin Ninehouser loves photography for its ability to reveal truths and insights that are often too difficult to capture with words. She believes, as Garrison Keillor says through his troubled yet triumphant character Barbara in Pontoon, that “the only sermon that counts is the one formed by our actions.” A native of New Castle, Erin has made her home in Ambridge where she lives happily with her wonderful husband Dave, their three adorable and hilarious cats, and their “old gentleman” dog, Max. Erin is excited to help tell the stories of the people of Beaver County. You can see more of her work on Facebook and connect on Instagram or Twitter.
