We thank you for understanding and are very grateful for your support of the Crafton Public Library!
If you or your company wish to donate money, the Library suggests unrestricted gifts and will use the donation at the discretion of the Director. In the event of restricted gifts, an agreement of understanding will be filed between the donor and the Library for what purposes the gift can be used. After such agreement is made, the donor is generally not contacted and will have no further input into the disposition of the gift.
The library reserves the right of final selection in order to meet the needs of space, building design, and utilization plus criteria of the Materials Selection Policy. The library cannot commit to a perpetual fund. When all currently held funds are exhausted, the fund will dissolve.
Please make all checks payable to the Crafton Public Library with attention to the Library Director.
Memorial Donations are welcome in any amount and may be made in person at the library, by mail, or electronically through the online donation link to the left.
You may suggest the subject area and one of our librarians will select material suitable for our collection. A special bookplate will be affixed to the inside cover.
If the gift is made by mail or via the online donation link, please include the name of the person the gift is made for, the name(s) of the giver(s) of the gift, and addresses of both the giver(s) and the person(s) that should receive the acknowledgement.
