Support Your Local, Support Your Library by Shopping Small and Giving Big!

To kick off its annual fundraising campaign, Scranton Memorial Library will celebrate its 2nd annual Support Your Local, Support Your Library fundraiser. During the month of July, the library is partnering with local business owners that have generously offered to make a donation to Scranton Memorial Library’s annual fund. By simply eating or shopping at your favorite local establishments, you support your community and your library. Link to calendar and flyers in post.
