Same wonderful library, new exciting name -

At a recent dedication ceremony, the Southern York County Library was renamed the Paul Smith Library of Southern York County. Smith’s generous contribution of saleable land to the facility’s capital campaign resulted in a gift of more than one-half million dollars.

Paul Smith, a native York County businessman and World War II veteran of the Battle of the Bulge, started Paul L. Smith Builders in 1946. In Southern York County, Smith built the Southern Farms Development, Oakwood Manor, Eastwood Townhomes, a portion of Forest Lakes, Market Square Shopping Center, Freedom Hills, Slyder Estates, and Boundary Road Apartments, in addition to many private homes.
