So. Lehigh Public Library in Midst of 'Helping Hands Campaign'

The Southern Lehigh Public Library is in the midst of a major fundraising drive, called the 'Helping Hands' campaign.

The Southern Lehigh Public Library is in the midst of a major fundraising drive, called the "Helping Hands" campaign.

Library board member and Southern Lehigh School District representative Keith Scattergood highlighted the campaign during a recent presentation to the school board, and said its success is important for the future of the library.

"As usual our budget is very tough," Scattergood said.

Information about the campaign, including specific donation levels, is posted on the library's website along with a letter from library director Lynnette Saeger.

For donors of $50 or more, there is the opportunity to win raffle prizes such as a beach chair and gift basket ($50-$99), a Nook e-reader ($100-$249), or a cooking class with Italian cookbook author Sharon Sanders ($250 and up).

Money raised by the Helping Hands campaign will be used to help the library maintain its tradition of high quality services, collections, programs and facilities for residents of Upper Saucon Township, Coopersburg and Lower Milford Township.

It will also help to fund the library's transformation into a dynamic community center that will host everything from cooking classes to fitness programs to author visits and movie nights.

"We've got some really exciting things happening," Scattergood said of the new offerings.

Donations to the campaign can be made online through PayPal or via a form that is available for download from the library's website.

Donations are tax deductible, and donors of $1,000 or more will be permanently honored on the library's Tree of Knowledge.

Our library wouldn't be nearly so fantastic without the tremendous support and generosity of the community. It has made all the difference. Please consider giving this year. And if you haven't visited in awhile, please stop by the library to learn more about all the exciting new programs and services being offered or visit www.solehipl.org. You just might be surprised!
