Newest Library Angels:

Now through Wednesday, December 22nd, Youngsville Library’s 13th Annual “Library-Angel” fundraiser is occurring. A corresponding “Library-Angel” is placed on the Library-Angel tree for each donation made and specifies if the donation was in honor of or in memory of an individual. Library Angels are also mentioned on our website and listed in the TimesObserver. To become a Library Angel just stop by the Youngsville Library during business hours or visit our library’s homepage at YoungsvilleLibrary.org and click on the Library Angel Tree link. From our website you can print and complete a downloadable form which you can either mail to the library or place in our secure drop-box (which is open 24/7). You can mail your Library Angel donation (without a form) 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 (and if it is in memoriam or in honor of someone). Regular business hours are Mondays & Wednesdays Noon-6 pm, Tuesdays 10 am – 2 pm, and Fridays Noon – 4 pm.
