ExtraGive Toolkit

Thank you for being a Lancaster Public Library Lover!

During The Extraordinary Give on Friday, November 20th, library supporters like yourself will have an opportunity to stretch your crucial donation to Lancaster Public Library. A pool of more than half a million dollars from Rodgers & Associates, The High Foundation, and other generous community sponsors is available to match your generosity and help support the programs our community has come to rely on.

To support you, our fundraising champions, we have devised the ExtraGive Toolkit. Please download & share our social media infographics or personalize & send an email of support to your friends and family. Bonus points if you record and submit a video message for the ExtraGive CAST!

Thank you for helping us expand our reach and sharing your love of Lancaster Public Library with your network!

Thank you for your support!

We’ve got a few ideas to get you into the spirit of giving on Friday, November 20.

To reward those who go the EXTRA mile, we are pleased to offer the first 40 $100+ ExtraGive donors a complimentary print of Freiman Stoltzfus’ “Pennsylvania”.

We are also giving out children’s activity packets at our Lancaster City and Mountville Branches. Visit the library and receive a packet full of fun, library lover goodies! While supplies last. 

Finally, those who visit the Lancaster City Branch are invited to write a verse (or two or three or…) of our story. We’ll provide a blank canvas (also known as a white board) and some magnetized words, and you will bring the rhyme!

We appreciate your support during the ExtraGive and always 💙
