Donate to the Library

Please contact a member of the library staff with questions or help with the donation process.

Monetary Donations

Monetary gifts are a great way to show your support of the library. Donations of funds are always welcome and may range from a simple cash gift to endowments and bequests. Gifts of all sizes are welcomed and acknowledged. Donations to the library are generally tax-deductible, to the extent allowed by law.

Tributes and Memorials

The Illinois Prairie District Public Library is always honored to accept memorial donations from family and friends in memory of someone whose life was especially enriched by the library’s services or staff. We gratefully accept gifts given in memory of a special honoree or a loved one.

Donations of Books and Other Materials

Donations of books and other materials help to broaden our collections, meet the demand for multiple copies of heavily-used titles, and replace lost or damage copies.
We happily accept:
⇒ Fiction and non-fiction books
⇒Music CDs
⇒Audiobooks on CD
⇒DVDs

Note: Not all donated materials are added to the library collection. The library reserves the right to decide which donated items will be added.
