Dear Residents of Southern Lehigh,

Why, you might ask, is the Library Director beginning this letter with a definition of the word “bookend”? Southern Lehigh Public Library is a place filled with books, newspapers, magazines, DVDs, music CDs, audio books, e-readers, computers, reading tables, meeting space, programs for all ages, and knowledgeable staff, and it’s available to all residents thanks to the financial support of the community. YOU are the bookends! Your donation to the library’s 2015/2016 Helping Hands Campaign will support library services throughout the year.

In appreciation of your generosity, through June 30, 2016, the library would like to include your name on its donor recognition page on its website at the corresponding giving level listed below. Donations of $50.00 or more will also be honored with a tribute plate in a new item for the library’s collection and donations of $1,000.00 or more will be permanently honored on the library’s Tree of Knowledge.

Please remember to check with your employer and if a Matching Gift Program is offered, include the appropriate form with your donation.

Thank you for your donation! Your support and willingness to be a “bookend” lends a helping hand to the entire community!


Lynnette A. Saeger
Library Director
