To give by check, please send a check written to "Schlow Library Foundation" to Schlow Library, 211 S Allen Street, State College PA 16801

While we have temporarily closed the library building under directive from the PA Governor, the library’s digital branch and virtual options – all accessible 24/7 on this website – are expanding to meet your needs during this time. And we are still relying on you for financial support.

The library has digital resources including eAudiobooks and movies, as well as research tools like and the Legal Information Reference Center, virtual community rooms available to the public on the Zoom platform (thanks to support from the Centre Foundation), and more!

If you’re considering a gift, please know how important your support is during this time. We know this is a time of economic challenge for many, so if you’re able to give a gift, please know that we appreciate your vitally important generosity.

When the library reopens to the public, we will once again offer our many in-person services, while maintaining digital resources. Schlow Library needs your support to ensure that we continue the level of service the community needs when we reopen.

Thank you for considering a gift today...
