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. Donate Now or Learn More about the Association

Our tax ID number is 01-0360256
