Love Your Library Campaign–Coming in September

13912428_1345167732180084_344102977444829882_nThis September Love Your Library

A library brings value to the community. It teaches, inspires, opens doors, and creates community.

Thanks to the generous support of the Jack Buncher Foundation, donations made to the Castle Shannon Library throughout the month of September will be MATCHED!

This September, libraries across Allegheny County are inviting residents to participate in a special fundraising collaboration to show support for their local library.  Love Your Library, a first of its kind county-wide campaign developed by the Allegheny County Library Association and Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh, encourages residents to show their library love by investing in their libraries.

All donations to participating libraries of up to $500 per donor will count toward the match. At the end of the campaign, libraries will receive a pro-rated portion of the $125,000 match pool to support their general operations based on the total funds raised.

This unique campaign coincides with the American Library Association’s National Library Card Sign-Up Month, which introduces the community to the wide variety of services local libraries provide – from text to high-tech.

Little Free Library

The Castle Shannon Library is excited to announce that we have purchased a Little Free Library that is located at the Borough Building.

What is a Little Free Library, you ask?

A Little Free Library is a “take a book, return a book” free book exchange. They come in many shapes and sizes, but the most common version is a small wooden box of books. Anyone may take a book or bring a book to share.

Donate to the Library

Online donations are now being accepted for the library. Please click the button below to place your donation.
