The Bucks County Free Library Endowment Fund

The Bucks County Free Library Endowment Fund is an agency fund that benefits the seven-branch county library system with locations in Bensalem, Doylestown, Langhorne, Levittown, Perkasie, Quakertown, and Yardley-Makefield. The county library system was founded in 1956 by a resolution of the Bucks County Commissioners. The library is governed by a 7-member board appointed by the County Commissioners.

As a County library system, the Bucks County Free Library solely purchases and maintains an extensive collection of downloadable and streaming materials for all Bucks County residents to access. As a designated Pennsylvania public library district and system, the Bucks County Free Library collaborates on county wide projects, shares a public catalog, and provides support services to 11 additional public libraries in Bucks County. These libraries are independently governed and managed by their own local boards and directors. Their information is on their Locations page.

Gifts to the Fund can be made by submitting a check, payable to the Bucks County Free Library Endowment Fund, to the Lehigh Valley Community Foundation, 840 W. Hamilton Street, Suite 310, Allentown, PA 18101.  Gifts can also be made via credit card by clicking the PayPal 'Donate' button below.  A PayPal account is not required to make an online gift to the Fund.
