Mid-State Beverage Co. Supports Konkle Library Capital Campaign

You never forget your hometown and what it means to you, according to Don and Betty Jo Heim who recently committed a $25,000 gift to the W.B. Konkle Memorial Library Capital Campaign.

After seeing several recent newspaper articles and photographs about the Konkle library capital campaign, Mr. Heim wanted to find out for himself what was going on in his town where he was born and raised.

The “Time to Refresh” campaign committee met with Mr. Heim and his management team at Mid-State Beverage in Williamsport, and he shared his life-long commitment to community libraries across the county and felt he needed to be a part of this campaign.

According to Mr. Heim, libraries such as Montoursville’s Konkle Library “serve a great purpose in the community and it is the kind of resource that is open to anyone, no matter their economic level or their level of education.”  Heim said, “I appreciate that we live in a county that has libraries in the various small towns so that no one has to travel a great distance to experience and benefit from a local library.”

Dennis Correll, W.B. Konkle Board President, states, “The Library continues to be honored by such individuals and icons of Lycoming County/Montoursville area who have joined with so many others in the community to support this community effort to revitalize our local library resource.”

Founded in 1970 by Donald H. Heim, North Central Pennsylvania’s Premier Beverage Wholesaler Mid-State Beverage Co. strives to be a market leader. Mid-State Beverage Co. focuses on consistency, customer service, and community.

As the library undergoes a major renovation of its space, the goal is to improve accommodations for people of all ages and abilities and to give W.B. Konkle Library a whole new look.

The Konkle Memorial Library has joined forces with the American Library Association to participate in the Libraries Transform campaign. Libraries Transform highlights how libraries are community centers of information, technology and learning that fuel educational and economic opportunity for all of our citizens. Libraries contribute to education, employment, entrepreneurship, engagement and empowerment, and are catalysts for powerful individual and community change.
