Costume Jewelry Fundraiser


We will be having a Gently Used Costume Jewelry Fundraiser on Saturday May 6th at our Harrison branch! We will have necklaces, bracelets, earrings and more! You can shop for yourself, a friend or a family member! Keep this event in mind when you’re shopping for Mother’s Day!

We are currently looking for donations of gently used costume jewelry. Please make sure your costume jewelry is in good condition and that it is not precious metals or stones. Please give your donations directly to a staff member at the circulation desk during business hours by Friday, April 7th.

All proceeds will benefit the Community Library of Allegheny Valley.
