The Evangelical United Methodist Church Witness Class Adult Sunday School Class challenged church members and friends to double the donation from last week. On Sunday, Nov. 6, over 65 boxes were blessed to be send to a packing center and then to a distribution location. Samaritan’s Purse is a nondenominational evangelical Christian organization providing spiritual and physical aid to hurting people around the world. Since 1970, Samaritan’s Purse has helped meet needs of people who are victims of war, poverty, natural disasters, disease, and famine.

Library’s Angel Tree


Become a “Library Angel”  through Wednesday, Dec. 21 at the Youngsville Library. The YPL “Library Angel” tree is filled with ornaments listing basic items (and their various costs) that are needed at YPL (i.e. stamps, light bulbs, copy paper, office supplies). Make a donation and receive a Library Angel ornament to place back on the tree. Donations can be made in honor of an individual or in memoriam.

“This annual fundraising event was actually started by the Friends of the Youngsville Library in 2009 in response to the wave of cuts in state and county commissioner support,” said Library Director Kristy Wallace, “and the Angel Tree has become yet another way for our library to try to counteract a portion of the over $11,000 loss in income that we have been experiencing on a yearly basis since 2009. We can’t express enough how truly grateful we are to every one of our ‘Angels’ who support us every year and patronize our wonderful library.”

A special thank you to our most recent Library Angels: General donation: In Memory of Robert and Vivian Sweetland by Gary and Penny Lester; Book (adult from YPL wish-list): Bonnie Anderson; Books (adult large print): Rebecca Shippee; Copier Paper: In Memory of Audrey and Albert Eccles by Elaine Krill; Anonymous donor; Custodial supplies:  Gail Cowan; DVD (adult): Kristy and Roger Wallace; toward Youth Programming:  In Honor of Jim and Nicole Cowan by Gail Cowan; Energy-saving lightbulbs: The Wolfe Family; Magazine subscriptions: The Zock Family; toward annual newspaper costs: In Memory of Art Olson by his dog “Chief”; Office Supplies: Fayth Coughlin; Chris Montgomery; Stamps: Anonymous donor.

To become a Library Angel just stop by the Youngsville Library during business hours or you can mail a general Library Angel Donation to: Youngsville Public Library c/o Library Angel Program, 100 Broad St., Youngsville, PA 16371. Be sure to include the name you would like to be placed on the Angel (and, if applicable, whether the donation is either in honor of an individual or in memoriam). Regular business hours are Monday and Tuesday noon-7:30 pm, Wednesday 10-5, and Friday noon-4 pm.
