Ways to Contribute

Donate Books

TEMPORARY HALT TO BOOK DONATIONS – As the Main Library prepares to close for renovations this spring, we are sad to inform you that the Friends must temporarily stop taking used book and media donations.

PLEASE SAVE YOUR DONATIONS FOR THE FALL. We will gladly accept gently-used, hardback and soft-covered books that are clean, without mold, stains or ripped covers and in good readable condition. The Friends is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization and your donation is tax-deductible as a charitable contribution. We will let you know when donations resume. Thank you for your understanding. THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!

Become a Fish Friend

The fish tank in the Main Library continues to bring smiles to faces young and old! Being a Fish Friend is great fun for children and grandchildren, so please consider sponsoring our fabulous fish tank for a month or more.
