Clymer Library Annual Fund off to a strong start thanks to Volunteers

Appeal VolunteersThe Clymer Library’s first ever Annual Fund is off to a spectacular start, thanks to the outstanding efforts of many volunteers. In addition to the Clymer Library Volunteers, groups from the area helped stuff, label, and stamp envelopes to launch the campaign, reaching a patron base of thousands. The Friends of the Clymer Library, Pocono Lions Club, Blakeslee Rotary Club, Pocono Mountain Women’s Club, State Rep Jack Rader, and Clymer Board of Trustees all pitched in to tackle the mailing. The results have been immediate: the Annual Fund has already reached 40% of its goal!

The Annual Fund kicked off in June with honorary chairs State Representative Jack Rader (176th District), Lake Naomi Club General Manager Robert Jones, Former Tobyhanna Township Supervisor John Kerrick, and Bill Van Gilder, General Manager of Van Gilder’s Jubilee joining working Chairs Frank Cacchione (Trustee), Trudi Denlinger (President of Board of Trustees), and Juliet Dunham (Trustee) with Library Director Anne Hogya and Committee Advisors Lauren Catrino and Jennifer DeLeo.

The Campaign runs until December 31, 2018. Patrons of all ages are encouraged to visit the library and watch the Annual Fund Tree Grow, as donations populate the leaves of the library’s tree. Online and USPS donations are accepted, payable by check or credit card. All contributions to the Annual Appeal will enable the Clymer Library to meet the ever growing and changing needs of the community with print and technology resources, programming, and partnerships with area schools and businesses.

The Clymer Library is located at 115 FIrehouse Road in Pocono Pines. Serving the residents of Tobyhanna and Tunkhannock Townships as well as surrounding areas, the Clymer offers programming for patrons of all ages. The library is open six days a week with two days of extended hours, community and school partnerships, and recently upgraded technology/computer equipment. To learn more, please call the library at (570) 646-0826.
