Donations & Memorials

When you make a charitable contribution, you want to be sure that your money will be used effectively to improve the quality of life in our community. A gift to the Avalon Public Library is an excellent way to ensure quality library services for the North Boroughs areas of Avalon, Ben Avon, Ben Avon Heights, and Emsworth that we serve.  Each day in Avalon, our library staff reaches out to children and adults to help them grow and learn. We foster a love of reading and provide the vital information services people need. The continued excellence in services of the Avalon Public Library is a tribute to the generosity and support of people like you. There are many reasons to give to the Avalon Public Library. We are always happy to discuss options with you so that your gift can truly reflect the spirit in which it is given.
