Public libraries are in dire need of community support in ways varying from activism on the local, county, & state levels, volunteers, and donations. As a verified not-for-profit organization, all donations and proceeds go right back to providing our community with the resources and services it needs.
An easy way to give back to your local library is by signing up for AmazonSmile. AmazonSmile is a program that will donate 0.5% of your qualifying purchase to the charity of your choice and we want to be your choice. You get the same Amazon service with the added bonus of charitable giving. Visit AmazonSmile for more information. Also on Amazon.com, you can order items for us from our Wish List. Search for Lehighton Area Memorial Library under ‘wish lists’ and choose an item to add to your cart. The item will be shipped directly to us with an optional message from you! You can also make us your Thrivent Choice organization for your Thrivent Dollars. Ask your Thrivent Financial Adviser for more information.
Another way to support local libraries is by calling your State Representative or Senator and expressing that public libraries should be a priority for the state budget and your representative or senator. Call or write a letter to your Chamber of Commerce and city councils. Make your voice heard by your elected officials in your support for public library funding.
