Support the Library

The heart of every library is its community…and we rely on you!


The Desmond-Fish Public Library is a 501(c)(3) charitable and educational organization chartered by the State of New York.

Contributions to the Desmond-Fish Public Library are tax-deductible to the extent provided by law.

The Library’s Annual Associates Dinner has been postponed for 2021. We hope to see you next time!

Your gifts make a difference in the lives of everyone in our community throughout the year.

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. You may make a monetary donation, or purchase an item for the Library collection from local bookshop Split Rock Books (books only) or Amazon (other collection items and facilities needs).

If purchasing from Split Rock, use the promo code DONATION for 10% off your order; choose “Donation” as the shipping method and the books will be hand-delivered to the Library.

Donating In-Kind Goods

Books and media in well-packed boxes with lids may be dropped off at the Library’s side entrance between January 30th and June 30th. Please ask at the Circulation Desk for a receipt.

We cannot accept magazines, textbooks, and items in poor condition.

For other donation inquiries, please email

Planned Giving

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.
