Support the Library

There are many ways you can support the USC Library. First and foremost, visit us often in-person and online. In addition, you can:

Friends of the library

The Friends of the Library of Upper St. Clair is a non-profit corporation. Its purpose is to support the Township Library through fundraising activities. The Friends provide funding for the children's summer reading program and other library programs, and purchase non-budgeted equipment, furniture, and materials to enhance the library experience for all.

Join today!

Any USC Library supporter can belong to the Friends. Membership is renewed on an annual basis. With a donation of $25 or more, you'll receive a free punch card valid for five free books from the Book Sale Corner (up to a $10 value)!

Donate in person or by mail

Print out the membership form or pick one up at the Library. Drop off your form and donation at the Library, or mail them to: Friends of the Library of Upper St. Clair, 1820 McLaughlin Run Rd., Upper St Clair, PA 15241.

Support the Friends while you shop online or in person at the Library.

Your online purchases help the Friends sustain the library's programs and improvements.


The Book Sale Corner on the adult floor offers a wide selection of materials in excellent condition. Shop the Blue Dot cart for extra discounts! The children's floor features a variety of gently used materials from board books to teen reads.
