Make a Donation

Support the library as we work to serve as a vibrant, inclusive community hub!

Your donations allow us to provide free and open access to books, resources, classes and events, and spaces to everyone in our community.

Big or small – every donation makes a difference! Here are some examples of what your contribution can do:

  • $15: a picture book to be loved by countless families
  • $60: an audiobook to be used by seniors with low vision
  • $100: a robot to be used to teach children how to code
  • $300: a concert or cultural event open to the community

Donations are tax deductible and can be made in person, online, via mail, or by phone. Call 315-637-6374 for more information!
