Grafton Public Library

Donate

The Library accepts materials donations in good condition, accepts gifts year-round, and has long-term giving and bequest options for benefactors.

Books and Other Materials

Donations to the Friend’s Down Under Bookstore are most welcome. Gently used books, CDs, or videos should be in good unmarked saleable condition. Magazines, textbooks, Reader’s Digest Condensed Books, and outdated, old or ugly books are not useful, and the Friends ask to be saved the trouble and expense of disposing of them. Donations may be left in the plastic bins at the bottom of the stairs near the Book Store during Library hours. Please do not put donations in the book drops.

Library Donation Policy

(coming soon)

Monetary Donations

The Library is pleased to accept donations and gifts year round. We prefer unrestricted funds so we can adapt spending as needs arise. Gift donations might be used to purchase books and materials, furniture, or for programs. Money goes to the Town of Grafton for administration and is placed in a Library “Gifts” account for Library use. Please make your check payable to The Grafton Public Library.

Donations in Celebration, Honor, or Memory of a Loved One

Need a great gift idea? Why not work with us to pick out a special interest title or favorite author or genre, then place a book plate in a loved one’s name? This is a lovely in lieu of gifts option for birthdays, anniversaries, remembrances, or other gift-giving occasions.

For the Love of Books

This fundraisingĀ event hosted every other year by the Friends of the Library allows benefactors to select a title and pay the purchase price, then place a bookplate dedicating the donation to a loved one. Our next event will be in February 2016.

Wills and Bequests

Please speak with the Library Director to discuss long term giving, gift accounts in a loved one’s memory, or bequests.
