Fundraising & Donations

How Can I Donate?

Donations of books and DVDs can be made during library hours and can be brought to staff at the front desk. Do not leave donations on the porch. Please limit your donations to 2-3 boxes or bags at a time. If your donations are not added to our collection, they may be used for prizes or be put in our Book Sale and / or on our Adopt-A-Book carts. We do not accept dictionaries, encyclopedias, text books, magazines or newspapers. We ask that items are free of debris and in decent condition. Thank you for thinking of us!



Our Adopt-A-Book carts are full of books and DVDs looking for a new home! Our daily book sale is inside today due to the rain but when the weather cooperates you can find the metal carts on the front porch. Donations can be made at the front desk. Happy Browsing!
Long sleeve shirts featuring our Lamp of Learning logo are available in black or dark green for $15 each. A smaller lamp of learning image and the library’s contact information are printed on the back. Thank you to Rainbow Lettering for these great shirts!
