Now through Friday, December 23rd Youngsville Library’s 14th 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. This is a very important fundraiser for the library and the Library Board and staff truly appreciate the community’s support.

To become a Library Angel just stop by the Youngsville Library during business hours or visit our library’s homepage at 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). All donations received via the library drop-box and by mail will receive a phone call confirmation to let you know that your donation was received. You can also 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).
