Annual Giving

Annual giving from patrons like you is vital to our Library’s financial stability. We conduct an annual fundraising campaign in the fall and your tax-deductible contributions enable us to extend our collections, services and programs. Be assured that we stretch every dollar donated while providing the highest quality services that the southern end community has come to expect. This year’s patron fund drive letter can be found here.

If you wish to give a memorial or tribute gift, or wish to see a more specific use for your monetary gift please view the following suggestions:

Memorial Gifts

The Quarryville Library invites you to honor an event, an achievement, or the memory of someone special. You may give monetary donations for the collection, and library staff will work with you to select appropriate titles to both honor someone and meet the library’s collection needs. Proper acknowledgement will be sent, and a book plate will be displayed in the titles selected.

Planned Gifts and Bequests

When planning your estate, consider leaving a gift in your will or living trust for the nonprofit and charitable organizations (like the Quarryville Library) that made a difference in your life. There are a variety of ways you can make a charitable planned gift. Your estate attorney, accountant, or other financial advisor can provide you with more details on the types of gifts and the tangible benefits they offer. Imagine the positive impact on our community if everyone made a donation to a favorite nonprofit organization.

Gift Books

Our Friends of the Library volunteers accept donations of new and very good condition used books for our collection, Friends’ Bookstore, and periodic book sales.  The library cannot guarantee that any material donated to the library will be added to the collection, and items that cannot be added to the collection may be sold.  The proceeds of sold donations provide funds to support library operations.

Donations will be accepted on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10:00 am through 1:00 pm in our Pennington Room. All materials must be in salable condition and must be free of mold, mildew, or water damage. 

The library welcomes donations of:

  • used books
  • DVDs
  • audiobook CDs
  • puzzles
  • books of local interest (including local cookbooks)

The library cannot accept:

  • textbooks
  • music CDs
  • VHS or cassette tapes
  • encyclopedias
  • condensed books (such as Reader’s Digest books)
  • magazines
  • cookbooks (not local)

Donated materials become the property of the library and are accepted with the understanding that items useful to the library’s collection may be added, and other items may be disposed of through book sales or otherwise. The libraries cannot appraise used materials for tax purposes, but will provide a receipt without attaching value, on request.
