Books and Other Donations
We accept gently used materials for book sales with proceeds benefiting our programming budget. You may also choose to donate local history materials to the Preble County Room, our genealogy department.
Cash and checks donations are gratefully accepted. These support our general fund. You can also specify what you would like your donation to support.
Proceeds from books you purchase support your local library's programming budget and make events like "Dora the Explorer Explores Preble County" and "Fire Prevention Awareness" possible. Often a library can purchase special items such as a new fax machine, holiday decorations, or a children's rug with the proceeds.
Friends of the Library Groups
The focus of each Friends group is to benefit their community's library. You can support them by purchasing books or baked goods at their sales, or by volunteering your time to help them. For more information, contact your local branch.
If you would like to join your local branch's Friends group please contact the corresponding branch librarian. We have Friends for Camden, Eaton, West Alexandria, West Elkton and the Preble County Room.
Do you shop online? If you do, consider going through iGive. The company you purchase through will donate a designated percentage to your library at no extra cost to you. Select from over 680 stores including Barnes & Noble, Best Buy, eBay, Expedia, Gap and many more.
