Book and Other Materials Donations

Donated materials become the property of the Library. Materials may be added to the collection or given to the Friends of the Library to be sold at their used book sales. Proceeds from the sale support library projects and programs. A receipt for donated material is available for tax purposes at the Reference Desk.

   There are 2 places to bring your donations:

  • Small bin behind the Reference Desk.

  • Large drive-up bin outside the employee entrance to the Library.
    (On Eastman Ave.)

 Birthday Club

Celebrate the birthday of a special child with a donation to the library. With your $15 donation, the library will purchase an age appropriate title to add to the children’s library collection. A special bookplate will be placed inside the book to honor your child and a “Happy Birthday” postcard will be sent when the book is ready for previewing before it is placed in the collection.

Donations to the library are tax deductible. Please consult with your tax advisor.
