Two fundraisers at Cambria County Library have helped bring our Next Chapter Campaign to 68% of our goal, $47,787!

Pie Shoppe Sale

The Pie Shoppe Sale helped support the Pie Shoppe in Laughlintown and bring delicious baked goods to the heart of Downtown Johnstown. With help from NRG, the Children and Youth Services office, and other businesses and residents, the library sold 544 pies, snails, cinnamon rolls, and pumpkin rolls.

A Smalltown Mobwalk

The library also hosted “A Smalltown Mobwalk”, a literary tour of locations mentioned in Russel Shorto’s Smalltime: A story of my family and the mob. The book highlights known places where organized crime was centered in the city. Richard Burkert of the Johnstown Area Heritage Association guided the tour and showed pictures of what the city looked like during its criminal heyday in the 1960s. Tours finished with light refreshments and a chance to review articles discussing gambling and organized crime in Johnstown. Through ticket purchases and donations, the Mobwalk raised $1,085 for the Next Chapter Campaign.

We need you to hit our goal!

Our campaign has been going well, but we are still very far from our goal of $70,000. Business and private donors are needed to help us reach $70,000! Without your support, we cannot make necessary improvements to the library.

Will you help us write our Next Chapter?
