Support the Library

Support Your Library

Did you know that public funding only covers 74% of WACL's operating budget? Private donations from generous, dedicated community members help cover the budget gap and allow us to continue to provide a safe, inclusive, and accessible community-centered library that is free to the public and empowers its residents’ personal, educational, and professional growth through our collection, programs, and services. The library continues to grow thanks to the generosity of people like you!

Donations made to Western Allegheny Community Library are tax deductible. You can also volunteer your time, provide in-kind support, attend an event, or help spread the word about our wonderful library. However you choose to give, we thank you!

  • Donate online with a credit card or bank account
  • Give us a call at (724) 695-8150 with a credit card
  • Checks made out to Western Allegheny Community Library (or WACL) can be mailed to 181 Bateman Road, Oakdale, PA 15071

Western Allegheny Community Library is not soliciting outside the state of PA and only accepts donations from states where we are registered. The official registration and financial information of Western Allegheny Community Library may be obtained from the Pennsylvania Department of State by calling toll free, within Pennsylvania, (800) 732-0999. Registration does not imply endorsement.

Matching Gifts

Double or even triple your financial gifts through your employer’s matching gift program. Some companies also match volunteer hours or the contributions of spouses and retirees. Check with your employer’s HR office and submit the required documentation with your donation. We will take care of the rest and maximize your gift!

Gift of Reading

Contributions to the library may be made in memory, honor, or celebration of a loved one, or to commemorate a special occasion. For a minimum gift of $25, a new book will be added to the collection with a bookplate acknowledging your special gift. Give the Gift of Reading today!
