Last year 324 donors contributed more than $36,000 – a record number –
unlocking an additional $9,000 in matching funds from the Jack Buncher Foundation.  Help us do it again!

In September, libraries across Allegheny County are inviting residents to participate in a special fundraising collaboration to show support for their local library.  Love Your Library, the seventh year of this special county-wide campaign developed by the Allegheny County Library Association and Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh, encourages residents to show their library love by investing in their libraries.

All donations to the Sewickley Public Library between September 1 – September 30, 2022 will be MATCHED! Thanks to the generous support of the Jack Buncher Foundation, donations made to participating libraries of up to $500 per donor will count toward the match. At the end of the campaign, libraries will receive a pro-rated portion of the $200,000 match pool to support their services and operations based on the total funds raised.

This unique campaign coincides with the American Library Association’s National Library Card Sign-Up Month, which introduces the community to the wide variety of services local libraries provide – from text to high-tech.  Find out how to get a library card at the Sewickley Public Library today!
