There are many ways you can help the library!
New Castle Public Library offers residents various rewarding volunteer opportunities. Our volunteers work at many different tasks that enable the library to provide better service to the community. Teens are welcome to participate; seniors and retired citizens are also encouraged to help the library by contributing a few hours of their time each week. For more information on volunteer opportunities, call 724-658-6659.
We appreciate the special place that books have in people’s lives and the reluctance to discard them. However, limitations of time and space make it impossible for the library to accept all the books it is offered. Our purpose in accepting books as donations is to either add them to the collection or generate revenue for the library by offering them for sale in our Book Cellar. Please view our guidelines for donating books.

Speak Up for Your Library!
In addition to personally reaching out to our representatives in the House and Senate, we encourage library users of all ages in our communities to speak up for libraries. Every day across the country, libraries are consistently meeting the needs of their communities by providing a broad range of services for people of all ages and backgrounds.
The library plays a critical role as Americans face tough economic times; and we offer more than just books, movies, and CDs. Libraries offer their communities access to computers and the Internet, financial literacy skills, assistance with job searches, and resources to help small businesses.
Contact your representatives and let them know that libraries are important to you!
