Adams County Library's Annual Giving Society

The Giving Society Levels are a recognition of many generous donors who identify the Library as an important part of our community.  Support from the community is vital to the success of the Adams County Library System.  Membership levels are determined by accrued annual donations.  With our members’ permission, they are recognized publicly throughout the year in publications such as in our What’s Happening? three-month calendar or on our Giving Society page on our website.

Donations help in the purchase of books, magazines, electronic resources and new technology.  Financial donations also support the many programs the Library offers throughout the year.  Gifts are always welcome and greatly appreciated, at any time and in any amount!
