All public libraries depend upon the financial support of businesses and individuals to supplement the income received from local and state government. The Greenville Area Public Library is no exception. While supported by Greenville borough, Hempfield township and Sugar Grove township the library also has benefited from the gifts of many generous donors.
Memory / Honor Gifts:
The Greenville Area Public Library accepts monetary donations to memorialize or honor an individual, family, or group. While any donation amount is welcomed - and will be acknowledged by cards sent to the donor and a designated individual - a minimum donation of $30 is required for the inclusion of a book plate in an item. Any donation below this amount will be added to the memorial fund and used to purchase items for the collection.
Gently Used Materials:
Bring us your used books, DVDs, CDs, and books on CD in good condition. Your generous donations help us grow by increasing the variety of our materials and resources. When a donation is not added to the library's collection, it may be used for the annual book sale. For more information, call 724-588-5490.
The Library cannot accept books for memorial or honor donations. Book donations are accepted as described in the Donation Policy. Such donations will not receive a memorial or honor plate.While requests for specific titles will be considered, the Library has the final decision on what will be added to the collection. Items purchased in memorial or in honor become part of the general collection. Items are not held in the collection forever and will be removed from the collection according to the Weeding Policy. Gifts are acknowledged with bookplates or memorial plates. For more information, please call 724-588-5490.

The auxiliary group of the library is always looking for new members! Your membership commitment is up to you -- some members contribute monetarily, while others are active volunteers in the library and at special events, such as the annual used book sale, book discussion programs, walk-a-thon and other fundraisers.
The library can always use volunteers. Some volunteers opt to shelve books while others prefer to work the counter. Some come in once a month, some a few times per week and yet others volunteer for summer reading program or other specific programs.
