Memorial Donations

The York Township Public Library is dedicated to making a great library even better through gifts from the community.

Memorial donations can be made in the name of a friend or relative and will enable others in the community to share in your remembrance.   Generous supporters like you help us to fund our collection, equipment and library furnishings that are beyond the scope of the library’s budget

The librarian can suggest items that will be beneficial to the library community.
