Dear Southern Lehigh Area Resident,

As the library begins its 2018/2019 Helping Hands Campaign, I am pleased to announce an exciting new venture that will greatly improve access to library resources for all residents! In early 2019, SLPL will join with ten other Lehigh Valley libraries to launch the Lehigh Carbon Library Cooperative (aka LCLC). Residents from our service area will be given one library card that is good at all participating libraries. You will have the opportunity to borrow items owned by any of the Cooperative’s libraries and have them delivered to the library of your choice within 24-48 hours. Just think…your access to library resources just grew by leaps and bounds! Your contribution to this fundraising campaign will insure that the library’s collection of resources, programs, facility, and services will continue to be available and that we can successfully participate in sharing resources with all members of LCLC.

For every $50 you donate to the 2018/2019 Helping Hands Campaign through June 30, 2019, the library will enter your name into a monthly drawing for a $25 gift card to one of several local businesses that are the library’s community partners. In addition, the library would like to include your name in its donor recognition display and 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.

  • $25-$49 – Participant
  • $50-$249 – Contributor
  • $250-$499 – Sponsor
  • $500-$999 – Benefactor
  • 1,000 & up – Visionary

THANK YOU for lending a “helping hand” with your support! We look forward to serving you and your family!

Sincerely,

Lynnette A. Saeger, Library Director
