While Lower Moreland Township support pays for our lovely building and friendly and helpful staff, the Huntingdon Valley Library is so much more than bricks, books and smiles. To help the the library grow and meet the needs of the community, gifts of all amounts are needed. Our Endowment benefits from large gifts, our program budget benefits from small gifts, and our book budget benefits from every penny given in fines, or ‘mandatory donations’ as we like to call them. Tax-deductible contributions help us provide interesting programs, cutting-edge technology, and innovative services and collections.
Your gift helps us grow.
Make a donation today online or contact Sharon at 215-947-5138. Learn more about the Library, our Strategic Plan, and view our Annual reports.
Some prefer donating books to the Friends of Huntingdon Valley Library Used book sale, attending a Friends fundraiser or becoming a “Gold” member of the Friends. Your donations of books to the Friends helps us to add new books, movies, audiobooks, and more to our collection.
How much do the Friends help? In the 2016 Budget, the Friends supported 42% of our total materials budget, 84% of our total programming budget, including 100% of the Summer Reading budget, and 70% of our furniture and technology budget.
Traditionally, the library bridges the gap between public support and the cost of quality library services and materials with the generous support of the Friends, state aid, fees and fines, gifts, memorials and grants.
Through the generosity of a bequest and two individual donations, the Library Board of Trustees started an Endowment Fund in 2014 and with support from the Annual Appeal that year, grew it to $13,600.
The library continues to seek support for the endowment so it can provide a source of income for the library to provide:
- Seed money for innovative new programs
- A consistent base of funding during economic downturns
- Long-term sustainability

Join the Program
Consider becoming an active member of our Adopt-A-Magazine Program. We would like to both maintain those subscriptions that we already have in place, but at times consider the addition of new ones for which we see a possible need or interest among our library users.
As an area business or resident, you can make an important investment in your library by agreeing to pay for a three-year magazine subscription for the library. Those who pay for a subscription will be recognized with a sticker attached to the magazine cover. A business card may also be attached to make readers aware of your company’s products and services. Remember, any donation to the Huntingdon Valley Library is tax-deductible.
Three-year subscription prices vary and may be available on the magazine’s official website. You can also call Sharon at the library for assistance at (215) 947-5138.
