Donating To The Library

As a library supporter, your financial donations will help purchase much needed books, learning materials, publications and services which improve the lives of so many. It is vital that the Library stay current with today’s fast paced and ever changing world of information.  While the cost of materials – books, books on tapes, CD’s, DVD’s, Books on CD, Playaways and large print books continues to rise, our budget does not. That’s why funding for library collections is so important.

The library accepts donations of recent books, recorded books, CDs and DVDs.  Donations should be clean and in good condition.  We do not accept donations of old news magazines, textbooks, encyclopedias or VHS.
