Become a Library Angel and help the Youngsville Library. From now through January 5th the Youngsville Library has a special tree on display near the Circulation Desk. The Library Angel Tree is filled with ornaments listing basic items (& their costs) that are vital to the survival of the library, everything from stamps to DVDs to copy paper and even general donations (just to name a few). Community members are encouraged to take an ornament from the tree and make a donation at the circulation desk. You will receive a Library Angel ornament to place back on the tree for each Angel-donation that is made. The Library will list each Library Angel donation in the Youngsville News section during the duration of the program.
To become a Library Angel just stop by the Youngsville Library during business hours and or you can mail a general Library Angel Donation to: Youngsville Public Library c/o Library Angel Program, 100 Broad Street, Youngsville, PA 16371. Please be sure to include the name you would like to be placed on the Angel. The Youngsville Library's business hours are: Monday and Tuesday, noon-7:30 pm, Wednesday, 10 a.m.-5 p.m., and Friday, noon-4 pm. The Library is closed Thursdays and Saturdays.

$1 books available
For just $1 you can get a "gently used" hardcover or paperback book and help support the Youngsville Public Library. These "nearly new" books make great stocking-stuffers (or gifts) and are available at the library year-round.
Currently, the Library is featuring a slew of mystery, suspense, and thriller titles in a new display located near the circulation desk (this new and creative display was created by library employee Midge Nelson).
Additional genres such as romance, general fiction, and nonfiction titles are also available for $1.00 per book in the lobby. "People are always amazed at the quality of our $1.00 'Ribbon Books' and also by the constantly changing selections that we have at the library," stated Library Director Kristy Wallace.
TV system update
The Youngsville TV Corp, a non-profit corporation filed with the Commonwealth and the IRS, has been busy updating its system. It has added Turner Classic Movies on Channel 14, a new Channel lineup station/community notes on Channel 66, and Ten (10) Sirius radio stations on Channels 69 thru 78.
It has also been updating its internet system. They are doing testing to see if they can increase speed and say they will let everyone know if and when it happens. Youngsville TV has retuned the entire system this fall and they have finalized their website: youngsvilletv.com. Their website tells about YTV and has the newest channel lineup along with other information.
For those who are new to the area of Youngsville, Irvine or Pittsfield there is a downloadable membership application. Prices are listed on the website. Youngsville TV is dropping HBO due to the cost of the station and is adding Showtime in its place for $12.00 a month. The price will be the same until 2015.
