Paraphrasing Mark Twain’s quote, my report recently of my hometown library’s death was an exaggeration.
Click through to the fundraising page to donate:
Or for those of you not on Facebook, you can mail your donation by check (the library is a 501c3 organization and can send you a receipt for tax purposes) to New Albany Community Library, 4610 Route 220, New Albany, PA 18833.
Again just to clarify: This is the library in the town where I grew up. This is not the library where I work, The Green Free Library in Wellsboro, which is in the town that I live.
My sister also wrote a post about the library, a much more thoughtful post than mine. I encourage you to go read her post to learn more about the people of the library– and the town.
