Giving

We greatly appreciate donations of all sizes! Those who generously contribute $250 or more will be honored on the library's donor mural wall.

Providing 21st century services in a 19th century building has its challenges. The Allentown Public Library Association (APLA) maintains the beautiful structure that houses the Allentown Public Library and works to create a comfortable space conducive to all of the library’s activities. We accomplish this daunting task with the help of people like you!

If you are eligible for donation matching funds from your company, please forward the forms with your donation and we will complete the necessary paperwork.
