We get by with a little help from our Friends!

Dear Whitehall Library Lovers,
Although we’ve been closed to the public since mid-March, we’ve never stopped serving the community! Our virtual library doors remain wide open and welcoming. We quickly transitioned to offer a wide slate of virtual programs and services, and most recently, we have begun to offer curbside pick-up service, safely delivering library materials to you and your family.

Our annul Friends of the Library mailing was delayed by months due to COVID-19 but it has finally been mailed! And your support has never been more meaningful, as library revenues have been significantly impacted by the pandemic.

Thinking about a unique way to honor that special teacher, coach or family member? For a gift of $50 or more we’d be happy to put a bookplate in a specially chosen book!

So please become a Library Friend by making a donation that supports the whole community!
