Annual Giving

Annual giving from patrons like you is vital to our library’s financial stability. We conduct an annual fundraising campaign and your tax-deductible contributions enable us to extend our collections, services and programs. Be assured that we stretch every dollar donated while providing the highest quality services that the southern end community has come to expect. This year’s patron fund drive letter can be found here.

Fundraising Events

The library hosts various fundraising events, including book sales, barbeques, and a bake sale, throughout the year. Please visit our events calendar to view upcoming fundraisers.

Memorial Gifts

The library invites you to honor an event, an achievement, or the memory of someone special. You may give monetary donations for the collection, and library staff will work with you to select appropriate titles to both honor someone and meet the library’s collection needs. Proper acknowledgement will be sent, and a book plate will be displayed in the titles selected.

Planned Gifts and Bequests

When planning your estate, consider leaving a gift in your will or living trust for the nonprofit and charitable organizations (like the Quarryville Library) that made a difference in your life. There are a variety of ways you can make a charitable planned gift. Your estate attorney, accountant, or other financial advisor can provide you with more details on the types of gifts and the tangible benefits they offer. Imagine the positive impact on our community if everyone made a donation to a favorite nonprofit organization!

The proceeds of sold donations provide funds to support library operations.

Donations will be accepted on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 10:00 am through 12:30 pm in our Pennington Room. All materials must be in salable condition and must be free of mold, mildew, or water damage.

Donated materials become the property of the library and are accepted with the understanding that items useful to the library’s collection may be added, and other items may be disposed of through book sales or otherwise.
