Reading Public Library announced Tuesday that David M. Kozloff, Esq., has been named as the Campaign Chair of the institution’s 2022 Annual Appeal. Kozloff is a founding member of the Kozloff Stoudt law firm.
He has served as President of the Berks County Bar Association, member of the House of Delegates of the Pennsylvania Bar Association, and Assistant County Solicitor of Berks County. David was the founding President of the South Mountain YMCA and a former director of Reading Eagle Company. He stated the following as one of his reasons for serving as Chair of the Annual Appeal, “Libraries are essential to a well-informed public. These days there is no substitute for knowledge.”
The goal for the 2022 campaign is $40,000. Among other things, income from the library’s Annual Appeal will support salaries for library staff who bring books and movies to fourteen Reading senior residential centers and the expansion of after school youth programming including chess club, SAT prep classes, and robotics club.
According to Dennis Skayhan, President of the library’s Board of Trustees, “We are very pleased that someone with Attorney Kozloff’s commitment to our community has agreed to chair this important annual campaign. Private support is essential to fund the important and significant work of public libraries.”
