Hughesville Library Trustees Launch
Annual Fund Drive
Hughesville, PA – New books! New and classic DVDs! Bestsellers! Free internet access! Toddler Story Hours! Summer Reading programs! Public computers! eBooks! Teen Movie Nights! Family Movie Nights! All these opportunities –and more – for enrichment and entertainment are available to you at the Hughesville Area Public Library (HAPL).
While these services are free to the community, they are not without cost. While state funding remains crucial to HAPL, an annual appeal is vital to be able to maintain and improve the library’s delivery of services. And so HAPL Trustees recently began their second annual fund drive to enable the library to continue to meet and keep pace with the growing needs of the community. Donations can be made by clicking on the “Donate” link at the library’s web site or using donation forms available at the HAPL circulation desk or by returning donation forms mailed to the East Lycoming community.
Patrons responded generously to HAPL’s first annual fund drive in 2015 – showing support for this valuable community resource. Charitable donations not only enabled HAPL Trustees to continue to operate and maintain the library, but also to enhance library services, including: increased inventory of new and classic DVDs, initiation of family movie nights, purchase of a new public printer/copier/scanner and installation of new tables in the community room.
Andrew Carnegie believed that “A library outranks any other thing a community can do to benefit its people. It is a never failing spring in the desert.” HAPL Trustees encourage the community to come to the library to ‘check out’ what is available to enhance all areas of life through print and media. The staff is ready to assist you and do all they can to meet your needs for literacy, entertainment and information.
