Save Redner’s Tapes

Get a Redner’s Save-a-Tape (or Pump Perks) card at the customer service desk at your Redner’s.  Have the card scanned each time you check out.  Hand in the ENTIRE tape next time you are in the library.  Redner’s will donate back to the library 1% of your Save-a-Tape total.  Thank you Redner’s Markets for giving back to the community.

Adopt a Book/Leave a Personal Legacy

Adopt-a-Book and honor someone special and help to build the Pottstown Regional Public Library’s collection. Your tax-deductible donation will be used to purchase items for the library. You may choose to dedicate items to the memory of, or in the honor of someone special to you.  A dedicated book makes a great present on birthdays, holidays, anniversaries,or retirements.  A bookplate will be placed in each item with the name of the donor and/or the honoree.   If you are a member of a club or organization, adopting a book could be a group project, perhaps continuing from month-to-month or year-to-year.

Leave a Legacy allows you to not only strengthen our Library and our community, it can also provide you tax advantages, and ensures that your generosity will be remembered for years to come. Your donation will ensure that the Library remains a vital civic asset for future generations.
