Make a difference: contribute!

Your donations make more than just books possible: you make a community possible. The generosity of people like you means that kids have a safe place to read, to study, to research. You give book clubs a place to meet. You give public internet access to those without computers. You give story times for young children, and year-round screenings of family-friendly movies. You give summer reading programs and a gathering place for a host of special programs throughout the year.

You don't have to be rich. Every donation—big and small—makes a difference.

We’ll place a special bookplate in the front of your purchase reflecting your request. Contact us and we’ll let you know how to go about making this special contribution to your library.
