Funding organizations want to see that their investments are a benefit to the public and the community, so attendance is important.

Thanks in large part to a 2009 grant from the Community Foundation of Warren County, the Youngsville Library has been able to expand its large print, audio, and Christian fiction selection to meet the needs of the Rouse Readers and requests of our area patrons.
"In recent years we have prided ourselves in increasing both the variety and size of our large print collection at the Youngsville Library," stated Library Director, Kristy Wallace. "Unfortunately, due to budget restraints we were afraid that our large print collection would suffer. However the grant provided to us by the Community Foundation of Warren County enabled us to continue to add to this much utilized and much in demand portion of our collection." Youngsville's large print collection isn't just for the Rouse Reader program though. "Most people don't realize how often we get requests, from throughout the state, for many of our large print titles," stated Wallace "not to mention the growing number of county and local patrons who prefer to reader large print text. We are truly proud of the number of large type items we can offer to our patrons for a library of our size and are thankful for the support given to us by the Community Foundation of Warren County."

These donations appear under the Youngsville Area News because all the libraries are not branches of the Warren Library. Youngsville does not benefit from donations/memorials/gifts given to the Warren Library nor does it receive any funding from the Warren Library and Warren does not benefit from memorials or donations given to Youngsville. Any memorials that are listed by other libraries in the paper are only for that library. A misconception is that people think the five libraries in Warren County are one, when actually they are independent of each other, separate funding and separate budgets. If you'd like more information regarding our Memorial, In Honor Of, or Wish-list programs please contact the Youngsville Library 814/563-7670 during business hours: Monday and Tuesday from 12 - 7:30 p.m., Wednesday 10 a.m. - 5 p.m., and Friday 12 - 4 p.m.
