Our libraries are sources of support, connection and information for everyone in the community. Our holdings, programs and resources are expanding every day, but public funding has not kept up. Support this year’s programs and acquisitions, and allow us to better serve the increasing numbers of people using the libraries for years to come.
Does your company offer matching gift? We’ve compiled a list of some companies that offer matching gifts. Please consider asking your company if they will match your gift even if they’re not listed here.
Give to the Annual Fund
Your gift to the Annual Fund ensures that:
• Families can find books, movies, and more to share, and can connect with one another at story times, performances, and special events.
• School-age children find books and materials they need to support their learning in school, and can meet friends in art, technology, and science classes.
• Teens connect in their own space, where they can socialize, chat, or read, and participate in programs catered to their interests and needs.
• Adults borrow the latest best-seller; find materials to support their work or hobbies; participate in book groups, bridge games, mahjong and chess tournaments; and enjoy authors and other speakers.
Annual Fund donations directed to either Tredyffrin Public Library or Paoli Library will support current operations.
If you’d like to direct your gift to support for the sustainability and growth of our libraries in the future, please direct it to the Tredyffrin Township Library Foundation. Our Foundation maintains an endowment fund that provides an ongoing, reliable revenue stream that supports operations and special programs and ensures the libraries’ viability into the future. A gift to the endowment fund supports the libraries indefinitely.
Donors who give $120 or more receive free rentals at both TPL & PL for the year! Please note that donors are still responsible for fines accrued.
