The Dauphin County Library System : Open for Discovery

Named Areas at the Library

William H. & Marion C. Alexander Family Library

The Hershey Company Adult Reading Area

The Hershey Company’s generous gifts to both the “Libraries are for LIFE” and the Connecting the Community in the Heart of Hummelstown capital campaigns helped pave the way for the new library.

Support of broad-impact community improvement efforts is part of how this famous local company does business. As Jim George, Vice President, Community Relations explains, “The Hershey Company is dedicated to making a difference in the communities where we live, work and do business, with a particular focus on children at risk. This is part of the legacy established by our founder, Milton Hershey. We strive to ensure that Mr. Hershey’s legacy lives on and grows with our company through the support of initiatives such as the Dauphin County Library System’s William H. & Marion C. Alexander Family Library in Hummelstown.” The adult reading area will be named in recognition of the company’s gifts.
