PA Forward: Why It’s Important to Pennsylvania
PA Forward - Pennsylvania Libraries is a new initiative of the Pennsylvania Library Association. It was created to give voice to what the library community already knows, and what other states throughout the nation are also recognizing: with the right support, libraries are ideally positioned to become the community centers of information, technology, and learning that will fuel educational and economic opportunity for all citizens.
Libraries are no longer just buildings that house books. Today’s libraries are agile institutions serving real-life needs. They hold the key to powering progress and elevating the quality of life in Pennsylvania by fueling the types of knowledge essential to success: Basic Literacy, Information Literacy, Civic and Social Literacy, Health Literacy and Financial Literacy.

Shop with Scrip
Purchase gift cards Sept. 17 - Oct. 31
You by gift cards - we get funding!
Powered by Great Lakes Scrip Center
Here is how Scrip works:
- You buy retail gift cards through the Friends of SLPL Scrip Program at face value. Choose from over 400 national retail stores including supermarkets, gas stations & restaurants.
- Friends of SLPL buy the gift cards at 1 - 25% less than the face value (varies by retailer).
- The difference between face value and what Friends of SLPL pays = Friends of SLPL earnings!
- It’s just that easy!
Here's an example:
Mrs. Smith needs groceries so she buys a $100 Giant Food Stores gift card through FSLPL. Wow...she just earned $4 for FSLPL because the Giant card is available to SLPL through it’s Scrip Program for 4% less than face value! She can do the same with Weiss Markets for 5%! Mrs. Smith checks out and uses her Giant or Weiss gift card to pay for her groceries instead of her credit/debit card! She will do the same thing when she needs gardening tools from Home Depot and earn $4 just by using a $100 Home Depot gift card!
