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!
