Annual Fundraising Campaign

In 1973 a small group of individuals came together who were committed to having a library in the Cranberry Community. Of course they wanted books in their library, but they wanted so much more than that. They wanted a place where the people of Cranberry Township could comfortably come together to learn, share, discover, and create. With a lot of help from folks just like you, we’re proud to say that we’ve done just what they set out to do.

We’d like to thank you. Together we have created the amazing community resource that is the Cranberry Public Library. It’s a place where we inform, inspire, and enrich each and every day.

But, success cannot happen without ongoing support from individuals like you.

Yes, we are fortunate to get funding from the Township each year. And we also receive Butler County and state dollars. However, with constantly increasing costs we rely on our annual appeal to the community to help fill the gap.

Your contribution makes an immediate impact, providing resources that enhance the quality of life in Cranberry Township and surrounding communities. $25, $50, $100 or even more can make all the difference towards adding an additional program, a new book, or improving technology services.

Whether it’s a preschooler just discovering the delight of stories, teens seeking homework assistance, or someone simply looking for the latest best seller, we’ve been able to help so many thanks to your support.

We’re committed to sustaining and improving upon the high quality services and programs that we are able to offer. We hope that we can count on you, as we have in the past, to assist us in our mission to serve as a hub for information, inspiration, and enrichment.
