Gift-a-Book Campaign

Help our library continue to give the gift of reading this holiday season! A great way to give a gift to your friends and family & benefit the communities we serve!

Drop by one of our locations, or follow the links below to view our holiday wishlist of books and other items. Pick a title, make your donation, and the library will purchase your chosen book.

This list includes a variety of genres and formats for all ages ranging from traditional books to audiobooks, and even DVDs! Your gift can also be location specific, so people can choose the library they would like their item
to be placed in.

To recognize your donation, a special personalized bookplate is placed in the inside front cover of each book. Since the public library is a charitable organization, a tax receipt may be issued upon request for items valued at
$10 or higher.
