As a member of Citizens for Pennsylvania Better Libraries (PCBL) our purpose is to promote the development of excellent library service for all residents. As a partner with the Bucks County Free Library in Doylestown (Doylestown Library) we provide financial support to bridge the gap between state funding and the library's needs.
