of the Bethlehem Public
Gift for the Future.
The Bethlehem Public Library will serve the people in our community for
many years to come. The future cost of operating the library
needs to be considered.
Library supporters may want to include the Library in their
financial and estate plans. If you would like to hear more about giving
a tax deductible gift to the Library in the form of a bequest,
charitable annuity or charitable remainder trust, please contact the
Friends (see Contact Us).
