Crafters and specialty goods vendors filled the Ross Township Community Center on Saturday, Sept. 14, 2019 to help raise money for Northland Public Library.

A craft and vendor sale sponsored by the Northland Public Library Foundation on Sept. 14 was among an array of fundraising activities held to mark September as “Love Your Library” month.

The event, held at the Ross Township Municipal Center, featured a variety of handmade crafts, clothing and specialty gifts as well as prize auctions and a bake sale.

While residents can help support the library any time of the year, doing so in September can make the donation more valuable.

Through the end of the month, the Jack Buncher Foundation will provide a partial, pro-rated match of all funds raised.

Here are some of the ways residents can help support the library during September:

• Dine at Blaze Pizza in The Block Northway on Wednesday, Sept. 18. Coupons are available at the library or online.

• Buy roses at McCandless Floral, 8105 Perry Highway. For every dozen roses purchased in September, $5 will be donated to the library.

• Dine at the library during Food Truck Thursdays from noon to 6 p.m.; a portion of all sales will be donated to the library. PGH Crepes will be at the library Sept. 19 and 26.

• Visit the fall Book Sale at Northland from Sept. 27 to 29.

• Donate to the Learning Garden capital campaign.

• Make a gift in any amount to the foundation.

More details on how to help are available online.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
