Ways to Support York Public Library

Here are some ways to help our Library be the best it can be.

Become a Member in the York Public Library Association 

THE YORK PUBLIC LIBRARY ASSOCIATION (YPLA) is the private, nonprofit entity that owns and governs our Library and protects its future. Public funding provides a basic operating budget for the Library, but we rely on contributions from the York Public Library Association and its members to continue to meet the needs of our growing community. With a one-time, monthly or quarterly gift amounting to $50 or more per year, you qualify as a member of YPLA.

Volunteer at the Library

Legacy Giving

Provide a legacy that keeps giving for years to come with a planned gift in the form of an Estate Bequest naming the York Public Library Association as beneficiary or a Trust established during your lifetime. 

Shop at our Book Nook

Our upper level hosts an ongoing book sale, just to the left of the Circulation Desk. Purchase gently used and nearly new books, audio books, DVDs at very reasonable prices. All income from our Book Nook supports library services and programs. 

Donate Books

We can accept certain books and media in good condition for our Book Nook, circulation, or annual Book Sale. Learn more about what we accept. You can also purchase new books for our collection. Call 207-363-2818 for more information. Learn more

Find us on Amazon

If you’re an Amazon.com shopper, shop with AmazonSmile! It’s the same Amazon.com you know and love that uses your same Amazon account. The difference is that a charity of your choice (ahem, York Public Library) receives a donation of 0.5% of the purchase price of eligible products from the Amazon Smile Foundation. On smile.amazon.com, select York Public Library Association as your charity, or simply click here to automatically support York Public Library with AmazonSmile.  While you’re on amazon, you can also check out our Wish List. Supplies we need will be shipped right to our door. Not sure what to purchase? Amazon gift cards are a wonderful way to help the Library acquire books and other needed materials.
