Our most important fundraiser of the year will be coming on November 18!

If the Quarryville Library has been important to you or your family, please consider supporting your library on this day! If a staff person pleased you by going the extra mile, if you get excited to see new books and movies on the shelves, or if you or your children enjoy coming to library programs, today would be a great day for you to ensure the library can keep offering these benefits (and more!) to everyone in the community by giving your best gift.

We’ve planned several special events to show you how we appreciate you. Click here to find what’s on the schedule for the Day of Giving!
