Library funding is a complex balance of public and private funding. The New Cumberland Public Library is owned by the New Cumberland Borough. The borough owns the library facilities and provides financial and in-kind support to the library.


Funding for the library comes primarily from county, state, and local private sources. As a member of the Cumberland County Library System (CCLS), New Cumberland Public Library shares resources, materials, and technology with seven other public libraries in the county, controlling costs and expanding access to resources.


Each year, hundreds of library users support the library with personal donations. The Friends of the Library host book sales and special events to raise funds for the library. New Cumberland Public Library offers its services and materials at no charge. Your support is greatly appreciated!


Mission Statement

The primary focus of the New Cumberland Public Library shall be to meet the cultural, educational, informational, and recreational needs of library users from New Cumberland Borough and the surrounding local area. The library shall:

  • A. Provide free access to library materials and services necessary for education and enjoyment.
  • B. Maximize available financial resources in order to meet the broadest base of community needs.
