Will you help us write our Next Chapter?
This year marks our 50th anniversary in the David A. Glosser building, and we’re proud of what we’ve accomplished here. However, in all that time, our building has not undergone a major renovation. Our critical components, like HVAC and sewer systems, are well past the end of their life span. In addition, the way people are using the library has changed a lot in 50 years. We need to update our building to meet the current needs of our community.
Will you help us raise $70,000 by October 2021? Funds raised through this campaign will serve as a match toward the Keystone Capital Improvement Grant, which will enable us to do even more.
Our prioritized projects will update aging systems, increase safety and accessibility, and improve our ability to serve our neighbors. Help us modernize our building so we can continue transforming lives for the next 50 years.

Next Chapter Fundraising Events
To help us reach our goal, we are hosting several fundraising events. Please join us in celebrating our Next Chapter and helping us fund our projects!
Join Richard Burkert of the Johnstown Area Heritage Association as he leads the Smalltown MobWalk, a walking tour highlighting the vitality of downtown Johnstown in the 1950s and 60s. The tour will include readings of nostalgic accounts provided by Frank Filia, and historical references to the Russell Shorto book, Smalltime: A history of my family and the mob.
The MobWalk will begin at the library and include stops along the historic streets of Johnstown. Participants will enjoy light refreshments at the library following the tour. In the event of rain, the walks will take place on September 11.
Tours will be held at 10:00 a.m., 12:00 p.m., and 2:00 p.m.
Tour sizes are limited, to attend please purchase tickets at the Circulation Desk or online at http://bit.ly/CCLSmalltown.
