Monetary donations may be made online via Paypal, credit, or debit card by clicking the donate button above. If you prefer to give in person, we accept cash and check donations at both libraries.

Friends of the Libraries also gratefully accepts donations of gently used library materials, including:

  • Hardback and paperback books
  • Children’s books
  • Magazines
  • CDs, DVDs, and audiobooks

These materials may be dropped off at Hawthorne Library (preferable due to storage space) or Wiseburn Library during normal library hours. Friends of the Libraries finds new readers for your donated items during our bi-annual and mini book sales and uses the proceeds to sponsor initiatives at both libraries.
