Youngsville Life: Special Youngsville library hours today for WarrenGives

As per tradition, Youngsville Library will be open special hours from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. today due to WarrenGives Day of online giving event.

Youngsville Public Library is eligible to receive donations through this event and would greatly appreciate consideration during WarrenGives, especially to help offset upcoming costs that will be associated with increasing the library’s parking area. Thanks to “percent match fund sponsors,” WarrenGives donations will result in Youngsville Public Library instantly receiving a 10% match in money. In other words, a $100 donation to the library means the library will receive $110 through WarrenGives. Minimum donation during WarrenGives is $10 per organization.

Need help with an online WarrenGives donation? The Youngsville Public Library is available to help with two secure public-access computers specifically earmarked for the public to use during WarrenGives. Plus there will be members of the Friends of the Library available to help navigate the secure WarrenGives site sponsored by the Community Foundation of Warren County. The library will also be offering complimentary treats for patrons stopping by. For more information call the library at 814-563-7670.
