Love Your Library!
For 77 years, the Columbia County Traveling Library has brought the joy of books to thousands of people! So many people have fond memories of visiting the bookmobile. Jessie Whitenight, pictured here, has used the bookmobile since it started in 1941! She says it just makes life better!
Who do you know who loves the Traveling Library? Maybe a child or grandchild who visits the bookmobile at their preschool? School children learning facts and reading great stories? A relative at a senior community? A book loving friend who stops at the bookmobile after work? A teenager learning about their world? A recent retiree?
Our state and county funding helps us stay on the road, but we depend on donations from community members to buy new books. We need to raise more than $35,000 every year from donations to put new books on the shelves. To date, we have raised just over $11,000.
We hope you will make an investment in our community library! Select the ‘Donate Now!’ button to make your online donation today, or mail a check made out to ‘Friends of the CCTL’ to 702 Sawmill Rd. Ste. 101, Bloomsburg, PA 17815.
Book donations are gratefully accepted at the Sawmill Road Library (Mon-Fri 9am-3pm, extended hours on Wed until 7pm). You can also donate small amounts of books at bookmobile stops. We may add some donated books to our collections, and others will be sold to help fund our services.
With your donation, you become a member of the Friends of the Columbia County Traveling Library, a separate 501(c)3 non-profit organization whose mission is to support the library. We could not do what we do without our Friends!
