General Donations

Donated materials:

The library accepts gifts of books and other materials with the understanding that they will be added to the collection only if they meet the library's standards and needs. If they are not needed because of duplication, condition, or dated information, the director may dispose of them as he/she sees fit. Gifts are accepted with the understanding that they will be handled at the discretion of the director. The library cannot appraise the value of donated materials, though it can provide an acknowledgment of the receipt of the items if requested by the donor. Donated materials may be dropped off at the library during normal business hours.

We ask that donated books (or other materials) be reasonably close to new in condition and, aside from classics and popular authors, have a publication date within the past five years.

Monetary Donations:

The Library receives funding from the State of Pennsylvania, Fayette County, Brownsville Borough, Brownsville Township, Luzerne Township, West Brownsville Borough, and through personal and business donations. The library is a 501(c)(3) and all donations are tax deductible. To contribute funds to the library, you may either print and mail the following form along with your check or use PayPal.
