Annual Fund Drive
Priestley-Forsyth Memorial Library
100 King Street
Northumberland PA 17857
Derby Day Auction
The Library’s principal fundraiser is the Annual Derby Day Auction, occurring on the same day as the Kentucky Derby each year. The Derby Day Auction has been an annual event at the Library for over 25 years, usually, the first Saturday of May. If you would like to donate an item for the next auction, please contact the library.
Annual Book Sale
The book sale is a major part of our fund raising effort thanks to the generous donations of books from the community and the support of visitors who purchase items in the book sale. Please donate your unwanted books, DVDs & CDs. Donations for the annual sale are gratefully accepted at any time. Please no textbooks, encyclopedias, magazines, outdated computer or travel books or moldy oldies. Sale is typically in October.
