State Aid funding for public libraries has remained flat for several years, while the cost for “doing business” continues to increase. Pennsylvania libraries welcome, and need, Friends continued financial support for their programs and services. Advocacy by PCBL, its members, and public libraries must continue throughout the year.
PCBL needs your continued support for its advocacy and continuing education efforts. We thank you for your past support in these endeavors. Now is the time to get ready for 2022 and part of that preparation is renewing your PCBL membership so that we can continue our work in library advocacy and assisting Friends Groups.
Please take time now to renew your membership for 2022.
PCBL plays a number of roles in library advocacy and Friends education:
Communications among Friends is critical and important. Please provide your email address so that we can communicate with you.
Equally important is our website (www.pcblpa.org). The site is complete with information on membership benefits, annual awards, how you can contact us, and other PCBL activities. Check this website often for updates about PCBL and other happenings in the state. You can renew your membership at this site and pay for it online.
PCBL needs your commitment, your voice, and your support.

Thank you for your interest in attending the PCBL Friends Institute this year. Unfortunately, the PCBL Board had to make the tough decision to cancel. We did not reach our minimum attendance requirement with the conference center and will be unable to hold the event this year. We will try again in future years, and will hope to see you then!
