From the Director, Joseph McIlhenney:

Milanof-Schock Library has participated in the ExtraGive since the beginning, and this will be my second year. When talking to folks about ExtraGive, I’m often asked, “What do I support when I make a donation to Milanof-Schock Library through ExtraGive?”

That’s an excellent question, and not easy to answer. Your neighborhood library is about books and reading, but that is only where our service begins. This past summer a pair of friendly Alpacas and Cylo from the Barnstormers visited the library for programs along with the Bloodmobile, a Ukulele player, a fiddler, Irish Dancers and so many other programs that I can’t list ‘em all in this space. Milanof-Schock Library is proud to offer a community place that is both social and a quiet place to read.

Your ExtraGive support to Milanof-Schock Library allows your library to continue offering books, DVDs, audiobooks, Wi-Fi, public computers, and so much more. Whether you are looking for children’s books, enjoy e-books or long for the feel of the printed page, need to visit a website or print out an on-line form, want to find new recipes for apple pie or want to know how to build a house, the library is here to help.

I cannot imagine a place where your donation does so many different things at once.

The Extraordinary Give is Lancaster’s community-wide event when nearly 500 organizations serving people across Lancaster County come together in a celebration of generosity. Online donations will be taken beginning at midnight up until 11:59pm. Please consider supporting Milanof-Schock Library, on this special day. www.extragive.org
