Access your local library

  • Friends of the Public Libraries in Lancaster County raise money that enables our libraries to move from good to great — providing the resources for additional programming, much needed equipment, support for children’s summer reading, and special events throughout the year.
  • The work of the Friends highlights on an on-going basis the fact that our libraries are the cornerstone of the community providing opportunities for all to engage in the joy of life-long learning and connect with the thoughts and ideas of others from ages past to the present.
  • Friends understand the critical importance of well-funded libraries and advocate to ensure that our libraries get the resources it needs to provide a wide variety of services to all ages including access to print and electronic materials, along with expert assistance in research, readers’ advisory, and children’s services.
  • Friends’ gift of their time and commitment to our libraries sets an example for all in how volunteerism leads to positive civic engagement and the betterment of our community.

During this special week we thank our Friends for all that they do to make our library and community so much better!
