Library funding is a complex balance of public and private funding. The Amelia Givin Library is an independent non-profit organization 501(c)3. There are 3 municipalities in the library's direct service area:
- Mt Holly Springs
- South Middleton Township
- Dickinson Township
Funding for the library comes primarily from county, state and local private sources. As a member of the Cumberland County Library System (CCLS) , Amelia Givin Library shares resources, materials, and technology with seven other libraries in the county, controlling costs and expanding access to resources.
The library is a member of the United Way of Carlisle & Cumberland County, and also receives grants, donations and gifts from other sources. 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. Amelia Givin Library offers its services and materials at no charge. Your support is appreciated!
The Amelia S. Givin Free Library exists to offer educational, informational, recreational and technological resources, services, and programs for all people of every age and background to encourage lifelong learning.
