Tamaqua Library Operating Campaign

As a struggling public library in a small Pennsylvania town, it is our goal to raise money to continue to provide, as well as expand our services to the community at large. We serve a great portion of the town with regular access to books, electronic resources, computer tutoring, genealogical and research services. We also provide regular programs for all ages that enhance literacy levels as well as helping to foster a sense of community.

 While we get donations of goods and services, we are having difficulty maintaining our operating budget as well as upgrading resources for our community’s use.  With the rising level of poverty in our area, as well as the rising number of the geriatric population, it is important to be able to provide necessary skills to these demographics so that we can help boost our town’s success and economy, as well as to subtract from the nation’s ever-rising learning and fiscal deficit.  We are already in need of updating our electronic resources to keep up with the needs of our patrons.  For example, many elderly and impoverished patrons need access to reliable software to apply for jobs as well as become proficient in the electronic world in which to do so.
