Martin Library in York will participate in this year’s GivingTuesday Movement on Tuesday, December 1.  The annual event encourages giving and celebrates generosity in nearly 60 countries worldwide. The movement inspires people to give to the causes they personally believe in to collectively create stronger communities and a better world. Locally, community support is integral to Martin Library’s provision of free library service to the community.
 
“Martin Library continues to be a vital part of the community as it celebrates 85 years of service,” says York County Libraries President Robert F. Lambert.  “Like its namesake Milton Martin and his wife Martha, the library is built on a vision that adapts to an ever-spinning world, where our country, county and economy keep changing.”  According to Lambert, library staff quickly pivoted to meet the challenges of providing library service during a pandemic.  Technology helped fuel the shift and Martin Library increased its online and digital programming to serve families who normally would have walked through the library doors. 
 
Martin Library holds the distinguished honor of being the first library in Pennsylvania to receive the Library of the Year Award from the Pennsylvania Library Association.  Contributions received during GivingTuesday will support Martin Library's Annual Appeal which has a goal of $50,000.  Individuals interested in supporting the library can do so at donate.yorklibraries.org. 
 
Martin Library is a branch of York County Libraries.  It is located at 159 E. Market Street in the City of York and, as a PA Forward Gold Star library, provides programs and resources to support the success of all members of the community.   It has been transforming lives and serving communities since 1935.
