Campaign for the NEW Parkland Community Library
Donate to the Parkland Community Library Building Fund
The Parkland Community Library is embarking on the most significant facility expansion in its proud history by building a new library. Today, additional space is needed to address our communities' needs such as employment assistance, improving educational outcomes for our youth, and escalating requests for information and technology access by all ages. This includes meeting space, study group, and children’s reading programs. The new $11.5 million, 30,000 square foot Parkland Community Library will be constructed on Grange Road, near Ruppsville Road, in Upper Macungie Township. Seeking and anticipating LEED certification, this attractive property will support the diverse needs of our growing community drawing families, advocates for lifelong learning, and individuals seeking resources to expand their healthy lifestyles. Located adjacent to Upper Macungie Township's recreational and sports complex, the new library building will provide an opportunity for total mind and body development for all segments of our population from children to teens to senior citizens.
Since 1998, the Library no longer receives funds from the Parkland School District and the Townships of North Whitehall, South Whitehall, and Upper Macungie. The levy on taxable real estate is used exclusively for operational costs. Accordingly, this $11.5 million capital construction project needs to look to its local community for leadership and resources to bring this to reality.
Your financial support is essential to make our new Parkland Community Library facility a reality.
