Donations in any amount are always appreciated. In order to be eligible to receive state and federal funds, we must show that our local community supports us, so the funds you donate are multiplied many times over. You may choose to donate during our fall Annual Appeal or anytime that is convenient for you. Your contributions are tax-deductible.
You may send your donation to Mifflin Community Library, 6 Philadelphia Ave., Shillington, PA 19607 OR donate online right now through JustGive.
Adopt - A - Book
Honor someone special and help to build the Mifflin Community Library collection by adopting a book, a video, a magazine subscription, or some compact discs. Your tax-deductable donation will be used to purchase items of your choice for the library.
A bookplate showing your name will be placed in each item. You may choose to dedicate the items to the memory of, or in the honor of someone special to you. This name will be shown on the bookplate according to your instructions.
If you are a member of a club or organization, adopting a book could be a group project, perhaps continuing from month-to-month or year-to-year.
Your gift makes a difference. Thank you!
Donations of Books and Other Items
Items for Collection/Ongoing Book Sale. Most of the year, we welcome your donation of items that fit the criteria in our guidelines (See donations guidelines). These donations help us expand our collection without spending a lot of money, and we love them! Occasionally, however, when we run short of processing time and storage space, we must put a temporary hold on accepting donations. When that happens, we will direct you to other organizations that accept such items or ask you to hold your donations for the Friends of the Library book sale.
Items for Friends' Annual Book Sale. Once a year, the Friends of Mifflin Community Library hold a book sale, accepting a much wider range of donations than we do for the collection. Because of limited storage space, however, they accept donations for only two weeks before the book sale, which is normally in late October or early November. They will not accept encyclopedias, textbooks, Reader's Digest condensed books, or magazines, and all materials need to be in good condition. (No moldy or mildewed items, please!)
If you shop at Redner's, please consider getting a Pump Perks/Save-A-Tape card. By showing that card when you purchase items, you will end up with a Save-A-Tape total at the bottom of your receipt. Then just turn your entire receipts in at the library, and the library will receive 1% of the totals.
