Monetary donations are gratefully accepted at all times. The library depends and appreciates private support. Your individual support enables the library to maintain a high level of quality of service to the community. Many employers will match your gift, making your donation go even further! You can donate online through our PayPal link.
We’re proud to be a Thrivent Choice®-enrolled organization. Through the Thrivent programs, we are eligible to receive grant dollars, fee-free donations, and support from Thrivent Action Team service projects.

We like book donations! Many donated items can be used to upgrade or expand the library's collection. If the donated item is not added to our shelves, the item will be sold at our ongoing book sale.
We are limited on space and often times have to take books that we can't sell to recycling so please help us by following these Guidelines for Donations.
Please do not place donated items in the book drops; they can be brought to the front desk in the library during our open hours. Our staff will make sure they are acceptable items or direct you to the nearest recycling center.
