WAYS TO SUPPORT THE LIBRARY:


Donate Books and Other Materials

Gifts of books (used or new) and other materials (such as DVDs or audio books) will be accepted.  However, the library reserves the right to determine what use may be made of them.  For example, some items may be duplicates.  In such cases, materials may be held for sale, turned over to the Friend’s group or other organizations, or disposed of in some other manner.  Such decisions will be determined by the library director.

 

Adopt-A-Book

In the Adopt-A-Book Program patrons are encouraged to donate the funds for the purchase of specific materials.  Patrons interested in “adopting” can select a specific book, magazine, author, genre, or format they like then the patron contributes the purchase price for that item.  As thanks the patron has first opportunity to check the item out and recognition book plates are placed on the item purchased.  Click here for more information.

 

Donate Money

Monetary contributions are deposited in the Library Trust Account.  Funds from this account are allocated by the Library Board for the purchase of materials or programs that are beyond the scope of the regular budget.  Donors may request that their donations be used for specific purposes, as long as they are compatible with the purpose and goals of the library.

 

Volunteer

Volunteers play an important part in helping to provide library services to the citizens of Dyersville and the surrounding area. Volunteering at the library can be a rewarding experience for volunteers with any background or skill level. Your support for the library will strengthen and expand our mission to serve everyone in our service area.
