How To Help

Everyone involved in operating the library is a volunteer!

If you'd like to volunteer, please contact us at or (814) 542-4572.

Do you have ideas for materials or programs you'd like us to provide?

Is there a particular book we don't have that you'd like us to try to get?

Contact us:

  • in person (when safe to do so again)
  • by phone at (814) 542-4572

If you are interested in helping us Financially:

Adopt a Bookshelf program:

Individuals or organizations can join the Adopt a Bookshelf program by donating $100 on an annual basis. For your contribution, a brass plaque engraved with your name (or organization's name), or the name of someone you wish to honor or remember, will be placed on a shelf in the library. You may choose the area of the library where you want your plaque. This donation contributes to the day to day operating expenses of the library.

Buy from us: We have items available for sale! (Prices given are suggested donations)

  • A Book of Recipes: bound cookbooks of favorite recipes of our volunteers ($12)
  • "I Support My Community Library" Plates: printed metal plates suitable for display on your vehicle or around the home ($5)
  • Used Books for Sale: Children's Books $0.10 each, Adult hardcovers and paperbacks $0.25 each, or Fill A Bag for $3

And of course, other financial donations are always welcome!
