YWCA of Greater Harrisburg

Betty Sullivan Memorial Library

AAUW/Harrisburg Branch established and maintains a library at the YWCA for use by clients, shelter residents and staff. The collection includes adult fiction, large print fiction, adult non-fiction (including material on parenting skills, inspirational literature, and biographies) and a large variety of young children’s story books and non-fiction and a small collection of juvenile chapter books. AAUW updates the collection on a regular basis. The library is housed in the computer lab of the building.

Free Books and Magazines

AAUW maintains a container of free reading materials in the lobby of the YWCA. Adult paperbacks, small children’s soft cover and board books, and a variety of magazines are replenished on a weekly basis with donations from AAUW members and some local area public libraries. (Donations for this project may be made by contacting Judy.)
