Become a Library Angel and help the Youngsville Library. From now through Jan. 5 the Youngsville Library has a special tree on display near the circulation desk. The Library Angel Tree is filled with ornaments listing basic items (& their costs) that are vital to the survival of the library, everything from stamps to DVDs to copy paper and even general donations (just to name a few). Community members are encouraged to take an ornament from the tree and make a donation at the circulation desk. You will receive a Library Angel ornament to place back on the tree for each Angel-donation that is made. You also have the option to make a donation to honor someone or in memoriam.
"This annual fundraising event was started by the Library Friends in 2009 in response to the wave of cuts in State and county support," stated Library Director, Kristy Wallace "and has become yet another way for our library to try to counteract a portion of the over $11,000 loss in income that we have been experiencing on a yearly basis. We are truly grateful for all our 'Angels' who support us every year." To become a Library Angel just stop by the Youngsville Library during business hours or you can mail a general Library Angel Donation to: Youngsville Public Library c/o Library Angel Program, 100 Broad Street, Youngsville, PA 16371. Please be sure to include the name you would like to be placed on the Angel (and if it is in memoriam). Business hours are Mon & Tues Noon-7:30 pm, Wed 10-5, & Fri Noon-4.
