This Season, Share the Gift of MRL


Lately, there’s been a lot of talk about the “sharing” economy. But sharing is not a new idea. Massanutten Regional Library has been doing just that since 1928, when the founders of the Rockingham Library Association created an institution devoted to sharing.

Today, when you visit MRL to borrow a book, or use a computer, or attend a program, you’re sharing in the benefits of the farsighted action of these men and women, and many more who followed in their footsteps in Broadway, Bridgewater, Luray, Shenandoah, Elkton and Grottoes.
At this special time of year, please join in the sharing tradition of Massanutten Regional Library by making a donation of $25, $50, $100 or more.

Because your support is shared with others, the impact of your gift is multiplied. It is shared by the proud father showing pictures of his college-bound daughters and recalling how he would bring them to storytime at Central in the mornings before his shift began. It is shared by the woman who comes to Village Library to say thank you for helping her job application, because she got the position. It is shared by the woman who comes to Page Public Library to use the genealogy collection to research her family.

Throughout the MRL system, the gift you share with the library is shared with your neighbors. The siblings who come to North River Library to follow the progress of the monarch butterflies. The teens who make the tiny “teen room” at Grottoes Branch Library their own special sanctuary. The moms who know by heart the schedules at both Elkton Community Library and Shenandoah Community Library so they always know where to take the kids for new books.
Your gift will be shared with each person who enters the library or uses our resources. And it will multiply many times as the knowledge you share is shared again and again by all of those who receive it.

Thank you for supporting MRL.
