The Pottstown Regional Public Library needs your help! The cost of running the library has increased drastically over the past 2 years, yet our funding from the state of Pennsylvania and our 4 local municipalities** has either remained the same or has been cut. Our staff is dedicated to our local community, therefore we want to help keep our doors open! You will find a variety of NEW fundraisers to help us offset the increased costs. Check back regularly to see how you can help us raise funds to keep the library’s doors open and thriving!
**Changes by municipality
-Pottstown Borough: The borough is giving us the same 3%, but their tax income has reduced, so that effects our amount as well.
-Lower Pottsgrove: Giving has remained the same with no increase.
-Upper Pottsgrove: Cut from $32,000 in 2020 to $5,000 in 2021, unsure of 2022
-West Pottsgrove: Cut from $20,000 in 2019 to $10,000 in 2021, unsure of 2022.
Thank you for considering helping!
Ways you can help!
-Monetary donations: Monthly, or ongoing donations are even better.
-Talk to your commissioner for your municipalities about how great the library is and ask them to consider increasing funding.
-Participate in our monthly fundraisers.
-Let us know of any corporations in our area that are looking to give back to their community!
-Let our staff know how much you appreciate them! A kind word goes a LONG way when we are short staffed!
