Please consider how valuable the Library is to you and your family. Since 1940, we have provided library materials, services, and events FREE of charge. We continue to look for new ways to provide assistance to the communities and patrons we serve, despite recent decreases in state, borough, and township funding. Your important - and greatly appreciated - donation will help with operating expenses, adding materials to the collections, and providing dynamic and engaging events for all ages.
We have an anonymous donor who will match up to $25,000.00 in donations collected through August 31, 2018. Please include the library as part of your summer giving plans - every donation helps!

The Emmaus Public Library is a private, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, therefore all donations are tax-deductible. Click Here for a copy of our Annual Fund Letter or use the PayPal link below. The library can send you a letter of receipt for tax purposes to the return address provided with your payment.
