The library purchases a selection of magazine subcriptions each year. The current issue is kept in a binder cover in the magazine section. When a donor pays for one of these annual subscriptions, the library will place the donor name on the binder cover for the year. Donors can choose “In Honor of” or “In Memory of” or even remain anonymous if they wish. Click here for the Adopt-a-Magazine form »

Memorials and Honorariums

Remembering a friend or loved one through a contribution to the library is a thoughtful way to express sympathy for the family. The library will purchase new materials with these donations, and a nameplate sticker acknowledging the honoree and contributor(s) will be placed into the book. Each donation is acknowledged with a card to the family and a receipt to the donor. Your contributions can be designated for any of the library’s locations.

Used Books

We accept donations of used books at our White Oak Branch’s Used Book Store. Newer books in good condition are the best sellers. Then be sure to shop and pick up a few titles for yourself. Used Book Store is open whenever White Oak is open!


Monetary gifts are welcomed at any time. From time to time, special fundraisers for items or projects such as renovations, chairs or bookshelves may be held. Municipal funding does not cover all of our expenses, and a grand building that dates to 1902 is nearly always in need of repairs!  You can mail a check or click the link.
Donate with PayPal Donate securely by credit card, online. Please type in Special Instructions line if it’s a memorial or other specific gift.) Or Donate at ACLA site.
