We welcome donations
books and financial support.

Government funding pays only a portion of the Library’s operating expenses.  As a friend, your donation helps build a strong Library system that:

  • Helps children develop a love of reading

  • Provides individuals, organizations and businesses free access to vital information resources

  • Educates and broadens the horizons of all its patrons

PLEASE NOTE: We will NOT be doing any home pickup of book donations from August 1st to September 23rd as we prepare for, and hold the Fall Book Sale.
