Why does the library hold fundraising events? Aren’t libraries state funded?

Libraries do receive money from the PA Department of Education, but it is not nearly enough! The Strasburg-Heisler Library receives support from the Strasburg Borough and Township as well as West Lampeter Township and the L-S School District. Sadly, this is still not enough! We are financially dependent on our local community members to be proactive on behalf of the library.
