Support Us

Your support helps!

Your generous support enables our libraries to transform lives. Our libraries are much more than books. They are a place where communities gather, a place where parents and caregivers find valuable educational programs for their children, a place for job seekers, a place to learn… a safe place to be.

Together, we build communities. Libraries are an important cornerstone in our community. We rely on community-minded individuals like you to provide much-needed funds for after-school programs, summer reading programs, computer and internet access, books and learning materials, and more. Together, we ensure that your local library is here for everyone to use and enjoy.

Matching Gifts
Employee Matching Gifts are donations a company makes to match its employees’ charitable contributions. Employee matching gifts are typically dollar-for-dollar but some companies go even further by tripling or quadrupling their employees’ donations. 

How does my Gift get matched?

  • Each participating company has guidelines for employee, spouse, retiree, and widow(er).
  • Check with your employer’s website or community outreach manager to confirm matching gifts to your local library. 
  • Complete and submit your employer’s Matching Gift Form to [email protected]
  • York County Libraries will verify your form and return to your employer.
  • Your gift and matching gift will support the York County Library of your choice!

Tribute Gifts
A gift in honor or in memory of someone you love is a meaningful way to pay tribute to a person, group, occasion or milestone. Visit the Donate Now page to make a tribute gift today.

Our Tribute Gift Book Program allows you to donate a book in memoriam or pay tribute to a birthday, anniversary, or other special day. A donation of $35 or more will place a book in the York County Libraries collection in honor or memory of someone special in your life. Library staff will select books that complement our collections and match donor intent. Items selected will bear a bookplate in the tribute’s name. The library will notify next-of-kin or honoree should you wish to provide contact information. Use this donation form to donate a Tribute Gift Book.
