The Lansdowne Public Library is committed to maintaining the services that our patrons expect. We continue to be one of the busiest libraries in Delaware County, to be open 7 days a week, and to provide a full range of programs for children, teens, and adults.
Library usage continues to increase year after year across all levels—a trend that we hope continues! Increased usage means higher costs, though, and unfortunately, our state aid funds were cut several years ago and have remained flat ever since (click here for state funding data). With fewer funds available, we are limited in our ability to purchase books, audiobooks, DVDs, and reference materials, or fund programs, supplies, and other library operations.
Please note, donations directly to the library are not tax-deductible.
