Support The Library


The Library welcomes your generosity in supporting our mission. Gifts to the Library are gifts to the entire community.  Donations are publically recognized in an appropriate manner, depending on the type and size.

The Library actively encourages donations to the library.  Monetary gifts offered with conditions, including endowment funds, are subject to review and approval by the Library Board.

There are a number of ways that you can make monetary donations that support the library:

You can make an immediate credit card donation, either directly to the Library or to our Foundation through our E-Pay service. Payment can be made by Visa, MasterCard, Discover or American Express.

Donate to the Foundation, including buying a memorial brick.

Donate to the Friends. Joining the Friends is a greatway to support the library and receive special benefits.

Through the generosity of sponsors the Library is able to present a wide variety of programs, projects and events that would otherwise be outside of our budget. We welcome sponsorship from individuals, businesses and organizations. Contact our Business Manager to find an appropriate opportunity.

All gifts of art and sculpture must be approved by the Library Board prior to acceptance.  The Library reserves the right to determine where and when artwork will be shown. Please contact the Assistant Director for more information on artwork donations.

Thousands of used books are donated to the library every year. These items are evaluated by the staff and a small percentage are added to our collection, while the majority are sold in our café/used book store. For tax purposes, the Library can supply documentation on the number of books donated, however we cannot assign a value to them.

Book donations should be brought in to our Circulation Desk. We regret that we cannot pick up donations from locations outside the Library.
