Youngsville Library’s Angel Tree Continues Through Dec. 22

The Youngsville Public Library’s “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 Angel donors also have the option to determine what their donation(s) will be used towards. For example those interested can donate towards Kids/Youth programming costs, security system monitoring costs, wish-list books, toner for the copiers and printers, public computer hardware and peripherals, etc. There is also a category called “Library’s choice” that gives the library permission to target the donation towards “higher need” areas. Donation categories/options are located on the Library Angel form can be found on the Library Angel website link through YoungsvilleLibrary.org. Library Angel donors are also mentioned on the library’s website and listed in the Times Observer.
