Helping Hands Annual Fundraising Campaign


October 2014

Dear Southern Lehigh Resident,

As Southern Lehigh Public Library begins its 51st year serving the community, its staff, Board of Directors, and Friends of SLPL are working to transform the library into a “community center” that offers not only traditional library services, but an array of   programs and activities for all ages and access to technology that might not be obtained elsewhere.  These efforts require funding and support from all sectors of our community and I am asking you to consider making a donation to the library’s 2014/2015 Helping Hands Campaign.

Growing up, many of us learned the phrase, “Ask and you shall receive.”  A little over a year ago, the library asked the community for input regarding the kinds of new programs and services it should offer and I’m happy to report that community residents are now on the receiving end of that project. The library is offering various fitness programs, cooking-related classes/demos, movie nights, more cultural programs, downloadable magazines, a furnished patio area, new reference database subscriptions, an improved list of links to helpful websites, e-books for children/teens, and much more.  With the launch of the 2014/2015 Helping Hands Campaign, I hope you’ll turn that phrase around and allow the library to receive your generous donation so that we can  continue to provide you and your family with excellent library service and become the valued community center to which we   aspire.

In appreciation of your generosity, through June 30, 2015, your name will be listed on the library’s 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

$25-$49 Topaz          $50-$249 Ruby          $250-$499 Emerald          $500-$999 Sapphire          $1,000 & up Diamond

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 continued support! Your donation lends a helping hand to the entire community!
