Linesville Community Public Library
Specific Need

The Linesville Community Public Library’s specific need is for $25,000.00 to repair the original 1873 stained glass windows. This would include repairing the interior and exterior of the frames along with painting them as well as installation of new acrylic window protection. This would not only preserve the beauty of these antique windows but it would also lower our heating and air conditioning bills.

Here’s How It Works

It’s easy! Simply visit and select the Linesville Community Public Library. Set a gift amount for the organization. Enter your credit card information and submit your donation. Online gifts can be made between 12:00 a.m. on Monday, August 10 and 11:59 p.m. Tuesday, August 11, 2020

The money earned by each non-profit group is an outright grant and may be used as they wish. Some may choose to establish or grow an endowment or they may choose to use the money raised for day-to-day operating expenses. Others may note a specific project for which they are raising funds.

Gifts of cash and other assets can also be made as part of Crawford Gives! Checks can be mailed to the Crawford Heritage Community Foundation, PO Box 933, Meadville PA 16335. Better yet, deliver your gift to our office at 415 Chestnut Street, Meadville PA 16335 to ensure it is logge during the program! Contact Christian Maher, executive director at 814-336-5206 or email if you have questions.

Use your library card to enter the catalog and place your on the hold button below the book you want to the left (remember your password is your last name).

We are encouraging all of our patrons to utilize lobby pickup and the lobby Summer Reading (however you can do Summer Reading online ).

Summer Reading 2020 is Coming!

Hello Everyone! We are still having Summer Reading despite COVID19! It may look a little different then in years past but we are still moving ahead and READING! We have two Summer Reading programs: one online (sign up online) and one that you actually come to the library and pick up a weekly packet (you will register at the library for this one…you can call in beginning June 8) so we have everything ready for you. We are doing this due to the uncertainty of the library being physically open or not due to COVID19. You can participate in either or in both but you can only count your time once for the tickets for the gift drawings. Yes, Summer Reading is for all ages Pre-K thru adult. It will officially begin with sign ups and packets available June 15 and run through July 29 with the drawing for the gifts that day at Noon. More information will be available soon.
