Dear Friends, 

When C.C. Mellor Memorial Library went fine-free back in 2019, people were understandably puzzled.  

How will they make any money? 

The truth is, fines were never a big source of revenue for the library.  

You, on the other hand, are.  

The majority of funding for Allegheny County public libraries, including C.C. Mellor, comes from the state. In order to get that funding, libraries have to source at least one-third of their budget locally through fundraising, donations and local government. About 25 percent of our funding each year comes from donations from patrons, grants and fundraising events, so you can see how important your support is to keeping us going. 

“Libraries are one of the only places that are free and accessible to every community member regardless of age, income, political affiliation or religion,” C.C. Mellor Memorial Library director Erin Pierce said. “But a solid community library is only possible with community support.” 

We're now halfway through Love Your Library month. 
All donations received this month will help us to get a prorated portion of a match pool thanks to the Jack Buncher Foundation, so your gift will go even further. 

If you haven't already made your donation to support C.C. Mellor Memorial Library's mission to educate, entertain and enlighten our community, will you help us today?

Thank you from your friends at C.C. Mellor. 
We're Counting on You!
