Libraries welcome donations of books in good condition. Some of these are added to the library's collection. Others are sold at book sales to raise funds for materials and equipment. We also welcome contributions made in memory or in honor of a friend or loved one. These contributions help to purchase books of lasting value which have a special bookplate showing that the book is a gift in memory of a special person. Although we receive support from the City of St. Marys as well as the Pennsylvania Department of Education, the Library will grow through charitable gifts from groups, individuals and volunteers.
