Support Your Library


Used Books and Movies​​
Drop off your gently used books and movies to help us grow our collection or provide great titles for our semi-annual book sale.​

Help the library survive and thrive by donating to the Library Fund for general operational costs. Thanks to your support, the library is able to grow and provide the resources and programs the community needs to succeed.

Help Make Our Wishes Come True
If you would like to help the library in a more specific way, you can do so by taking a look at our “Wish Book” at the front desk. This book is filled with items that the library is in need of, but does not currently have the budget to purchase. There are items to fit any budget, so you can donate a specific item to help the library run more efficiently. Your support is always appreciated!

Other Ways to Show Support

​Volunteers are a valuable resource for helping the library run smoothly. The Library uses the services of volunteers, age 13 and older, to supplement the duties and activities of paid staff. Stop by the library and pick up a volunteer application at the front desk.

Join the Friends of the Library
​Friends of the Library members and volunteers actively promote Library services and resources while sharing their love of books with the community. The Friends foster a positive relationship between the Library and the community, secure volunteers, and raise funds to support the Library.
