campaign to match $25,000 NEARS 70%

A friend of the Allentown Public Library Association (APLA) has offered a $25,000 donation IF IT CAN BE MATCHED by others who care about Allentown’s historic library building. Halfway into March and we have reached almost 70% of our goal!

Why is this gift so important? Because though the Allentown Library is a branch of the Monmouth County Library System, with all the services MCLS offers, the building that is home to the Library is owned and maintained by the APLA. 

Maintaining the beautiful historic building is an ongoing challenge for a small non-profit. An important project we’ve been planning is to repair the steeple to address leaks. The Library’s generous friend heard about this big budget item and offered to match up to $25,000 to make sure that this critical work can be done before any serious damage is sustained.

Please help us reach our goal of matching $25,000. Watch that thermometer go up!

The Allentown Public Library Association (APLA) is a volunteer organization that owns and preserves the historic church building that houses the Allentown Public Library so that it serves as a 21st century center of knowledge in a beautifully preserved 19th century building.

We are a part of a public/private partnership with the Monmouth County Library System, which pays for and manages all library functions while the APLA maintains the library building.

Donations of all sizes are appreciated!
