Help Spread Kindness this Holiday Season!
Happy 'hoopla' Holidays! As a holiday gift to our loyal patrons, YCL's hoopla digital checkouts have increased from 10 to 13! Borrow up to 13 Instant Titles per month until January 2. Visit YCL's Virtual Library to start downloading! Want to help share the kindness? Please consider contributing to these charitable causes:
YCL Food Drive: All YCL locations will accept donations of nonperishable food and canned goods through December 29. Donations benefit local area charities within the community they are donated. And don't forget our furry friends — we'll also collect pet food!
Mitten Trees: Help decorate our mitten trees and warm the hearts of those in need with gifts of new gloves, hats, scarves, and mittens at participating YCL locations through December 29. All donations go to York County shelters.
Blessing Boxes: Drop off canned food, bottled water, small snacks, and other nonperishable food items at our Blessing Boxes in Rock Hill, Clover, Lake Wylie, and York Libraries throughout the holidays and beyond.
Book Donations: Donate your gently used books, CDs, audiobooks, puzzles, and other media to the Friends of the York County Library. Donations can be dropped off at any YCL branch. Proceeds benefit York County Library. Learn more about supporting and donating at Support the Library, and join the Friends at yclibraryfriends.org.
