Amish Mafia star visits local library

Fans of the Discovery Channel’s “Amish Mafia” star Lebanon Levi, got a chance to meet him in person Sunday afternoon.

Levi stopped by the Matthews Public Library in Fredricksburg, Lebanon County for a meet and greet with fans.

Librarians came up with the idea for the event a few months ago to raise money for the public library.

About 300 people stopped by to see him, some of whom are starstruck at seeing their favorite “Amish Mafia” character in the flesh.

“I was just so shook up, I just wanted to stand beside him and told him who I was and that I grew up in Richland. I’ve drove past his house too and seen his car. I wanted to knock on his door, but I didn’t. That might be next,” Donna Borman, who is a huge fan of the show.

“To be able to have a fundraiser this large is huge for us. I mean it’s going to allow us to buy books, children’s programs, I mean everything,” said Natalie Fried, who works at the Library.

All proceeds will benefit the library.

Employees there say they expect it will end up being one of their largest fundraisers ever.
