Funding Free Library Services
The township appropriation to WJML pays for our beautiful building, grounds, and our dedicated, friendly, and helpful staff. It is the staff that is the library’s greatest asset. They are the ones who provide the innovative and traditional services and resources that make WJML the library you want to come to and support.
Your gifts to the library, no matter how large or small, ensure that we are able to develop the programs and resources that support early childhood literacy and life long learning, job hunting and resume writing, skills development, entrepreneurship, technology assistance, services for persons with disabilities, financial literacy, civic engagement, cultural and plain-old-fun programming, and so much more.
From large gifts to our endowment to bequests to donations to our Annual Appeal, every gift is vital to our continued success. Tax-deductible contributions help us buy new books, host thought-provoking and fun events and continue to provide innovative library services.
British author Augustine Birrell said it well: “Libraries are not made, they grow.” You can help the library grow by donating online or contact the Director, Lisa Clancy by email or phone 610-828-0441 x 108.
The library also welcomes tribute gifts to celebrate, honor, or memorialize a family member, friend, or other loved one. The librarians can suggest choices that reflect your preferences and complement the collection. The Library will insert a commemorative bookplate into each item. Donors can specify an inscription for the bookplate. You can access the Tribute form here or contact the Director, Lisa Clancy, by phone or email for more information.
Some library patrons have found donating books to the Friends book sales to be a gratifying way to make a gift. Your donation of books to the book sales also helps us to grow our programs, technological services, and resources.
When you make your Amazon purchase from the library’s website, you benefit and we benefit. A % of your purchase is given to the library at no extra cost to you. What an easy and resourceful way to support the library and make your Amazon purchases.
Matching Gifts Stretch Your Dollars:
Many employers will match charitable contributions made by their employees. Please contact your employer’s human resources department to request the matching gift form, and forward it to the Library Director.
One of the most enduring gifts is a bequest through your will, life insurance, or trust. Donations such as these create a legacy that demonstrates a commitment to public library access. For more information on making a bequest please contact the Director, Lisa Clancy via phone 610.828.0441 x108 or email.
The Library always welcomes contributions of time and talent. Please visit our Volunteer Information page to learn more.
