“A library outranks any one thing a community can do to benefit its people.” -Andrew Carnegie

About The Foundation

The Murrysville Community Library Foundation was started in 1998 by a group of dedicated Library Board and community volunteers who sought to ensure the future of Murrysville Community Library through fundraising for special projects. Today, the Foundation is guided by a group of committed citizens with the same goal in mind. Through a combination of individual, corporate and foundation donors, the Foundation (MCLF) raises thousands of dollars every year to support our library’s special projects and ensure its future.
