Give Local Fun at Your Libraries!

For the seventh consecutive year, York County Libraries will participate in Give Local York, the biggest day of giving in York County! The 24-hour online event will start on Thursday, May 2 at 9:00:00pm and the giving will run through 11:59:59pm on Friday, May 3. Last year, community members came together to raise an amazing $4.64 million for 330 local nonprofits. Give Local York amplifies the work that local organizations are doing collectively to enrich the lives of community members.

A Big Thank You from YCL!

“Give Local York spotlights the dedicated work of York County’s nonprofit organizations,” says York County Libraries President Robert F. Lambert. “Together, our organizations are building a stronger York County community and making a difference in many individual lives.”
