Financial Support

The Library relies heavily on the support of people and businesses in our community to provide services for our community. There are many ways that you can contribute to the mission of the Library!

We are very grateful to the many people who help us keep the lights on and the doors open so that we may help people in the Greater Elizabethtown Area Make Their Dreams Come True!

Your financial contributions are income tax-deductible according to IRS regulations.  You may give online or at the Library with your credit or debit card. You may also contribute in person by cash or check. You may mail a check or check equivalent to Elizabethtown Public Library, 10 South Market Street, Elizabethtown, PA  17022.

Employer Giving Options:

Some of our local employers have options for employees to donate to charities of their choice through withholding options. Please check with your employer to find out if this giving option is available for you. If you give in this method, your receipt for tax purposes will come from the intermediary organization who handles the transactions from your company. Then, after a small percentage is withheld, your contribution will be forwarded to the Library either once per year or quarterly.
