As we enter The Library’s second century of service, donations like yours are having a direct and positive impact on the lives of your friends and neighbors here in Dauphin County.
In 2013, children attended library programs 27,332 times. That equates to reaching 75 kids for every day of the year. But your support not only helped those children who could come to The Library, it helped us take the love of books and learning out to those who could not through 2,478 outreach visits — the equivalent of 47 visits each week of the year.
Of course, your library serves people of all ages with a variety of lifelong learning resources such as public computers (149 of them), eBooks, and free access to high quality online research tools. Those databases were searched more than 2 million times last year by job seekers, students and others.
And The Library is adapting to the constantly changing needs of library users by introducing services that provide better access. Two examples of that are the Print from Anywhere service that allows you to print to a library printer from a tablet, Smartphone or any computer anywhere, and the New Book Alert service that notifies you of all the latest titles available to you.
Will you help us carry out The Library’s important mission into its second century? Your gift to the annual fund drive helps with everything from keeping library doors open to providing family programs and public computers.
