Library-Angel fundraiser comes to an end

The Youngsville Public Library’s 13th annual “Library-Angel” fundraiser ended on Wednesday.

“The board, Friends of the Library, staff and I want to extend our sincerest thanks and appreciation to everyone who participated in this year’s Library-Angel fundraiser,” said Kristy Wallace, library director. “The generosity and support that our library receives each year from patrons — be they local or residing outside Warren County — is really heartwarming and humbling. Positive, annual support doesn’t just help confirm that people realize the value of our library, it is also so motivating and invigorating. At YPLibrary we try to show our appreciation for the community by continually striving to adapt our programming, outreach, internet/computer options, virtual resources, and more each year to best meet the ever-fluid needs of our community. We are truly grateful.”
