It’s Time to Give Local York

Remember Us on Friday!

The second annual Give Local York day of giving is right around the corner on Friday, May 3rd.  Last year’s event turned into a community-wide celebration that helped hundreds of nonprofit organizations serving York County including our libraries.  We were overwhelmed by the generosity of our library members and community members who donated and came out to show support at activities.  

Looking to join in the celebration?  Here are some fun things to do during Give Local York!
