The Rachel Kohl Community Library started out in a school closet and has grown exponentially over the intervening years. We continue to enrich lives and provide a safe space for our patrons to read, meet,  attend lectures and programs, and access the Internet.

The Rachel Kohl Community Library is a nonprofit, tax exempt charitable organization under Section 501 (c) (3)  of the Internal Revenue Code and is a registered Non Profit Organization in Pennsylvania. Donations are tax deductible as allowed by law.


The Library’s job is never done, and we will continue to provide opportunities for our patrons to advance their knowledge, and inspire and strengthen the community. Your donation helps the Library provide these services to our friends and neighbors. To learn how you can support the Library’s needs, keep reading.
