A Note about Funding
The Lebanon Community Library serves the residents of Cornwall, Lebanon City, Mount Gretna, North Cornwall, North Lebanon, South Lebanon, West Cornwall, and West Lebanon. Don’t live in one of these municipalities? Don’t worry! You are always welcome in our library! However, if you do live in one of these municipalities, we need your help.
We often hear from municipal officials that they love our library, they think we’re doing great things, but their residents are not asking them to support the library financially. That’s where you come in. Please tell your municipal officials that you use the library and would like them to support it.
- Don’t know which municipality you live in? Find out here.
- Contact your municipal officials. Click here for a complete list of townships, contact information, and meeting times. You can write, call, or attend a meeting. (You can check here first to see how much your township currently gives to the library.)
- Ask your neighbors to do the same!
The library relies a great deal on local municipal support and individual donations. Use of the library is increasing, and so are costs, but funding is decreasing. Please help by letting your municipal officials know how much you love the library!
