NEW CASTLE —
Editor, The News:
Libraries provide citizens of all ages the knowledge they need to contribute effectively in their communities.
Many people give to their families and friends. Gifts to charities can create a lasting connection, provide for generations to come and satisfy donors’ desires to make a difference by supporting causes that are meaningful to them.
The New Castle Public Library can be a valuable resource to help people determine which charities and non-profit organizations align most closely with their interests. Various watch groups monitor and report how much funding an organization receives, uses toward its mission and maintains in the local community.
By using library resources, people can make more informed decisions about how to allocate donations. And if finances are tight this holiday season, they can consider a time commitment through volunteering.
When making giving decisions, people should consider gifting the local library, which benefits citizens within the community in many ways. Contributing dollars or time to the library ensures the preservation of library services for future generations and continues to open new doors for lifelong learning for all ages.
Volunteering opportunities abound in libraries, from shelving materials to hosting programs.
Libraries help people of all ages build five types of literacy skills (basic, information, civic/social, health and financial) essential to greater success as citizens, students, parents, employers, employees and consumers.
These five literacies are components of PA Forward, an initiative of the Pennsylvania Library Association in which libraries partner with businesses and organizations to increase literacy levels across Pennsylvania.
