Support

Making a donation to your libraries is a powerful action! Support from the community makes possible new spaces, materials, and programs at Tredyffrin Public Library and Paoli Library, and donations to the Tredyffrin Township Library Foundation protect your libraries’ future.

You have options for how to donate to your libraries:

  • Gifts to The Annual Fund support annual operations at Tredyffrin Public Library and Paoli Library, and the endowment fund held by Tredyffrin Township Library Foundation.
  • Major Gifts are one-time gifts to support the expenses of specific materials, programs, or spaces.
  • Legacy Gifts are donations that are scheduled for the future, often as part of financial or estate plans.
  • Tribute Donations are opportunities to honor or memorialize a loved one with a book dedication or a paver brick.
  • Any type of donation to the library can be amplified with a matching gift. Please check with your company to learn how to obtain matching funds, which increase the impact of your personal donation.
