Thank you for your support during our 2022 Year End Appeal!

Donate / Get a Membership
Our patrons, donors, and Library Friends have made the Library what it is today. Please consider making a donation or signing up for a Friends Membership.
Friends Memberships are temporary unavailable for online purchase, but may be purchased at the Library during regular hours or at entry to the 2023 Booksale.
Donating In-Kind Goods
Because of space constraints, we are not able to accept any donations of books and media at this time. Donated material will be turned away or disposed of.
For other donation inquiries, please email email@example.com.
By making a planned gift, you are
insuring the long-term viability and vitality of the Library. Your gift will strengthen and protect the Library’s valuable assets–not only our collection of books and reference materials but also our valued tradition of service to knowledge.
Your bequest to the Library can support what you care about the most, whether it is the building and grounds or a specific collection. Or, you can leave your gift unrestricted so we can apply it toward the areas of greatest need.
