Donating Books and other Materials *New Guidelines* December 2018
Due to space and staffing constraints, the Library will only accept donated materials that are in new condition and have been published within the last five years.
Please check that your donations meet this criteria before bringing them to the Library.
Materials of local historical interest may be accepted regardless of age or condition.
Please contact Technical Services Librarian Jon George regarding this or other materials donation questions at 715-426-3497 or e-mail, firstname.lastname@example.org
Library patrons can support the work of the library through monetary donations. Donors can give to the ongoing work of the library, designate purchase of materials to a particular area (i.e. children’s books, large print) or for ongoing and special projects as they arise.
Memorials in the name of loved ones are accepted and appreciated. Nameplates are placed in the front of any materials or furniture purchased. Memorials may also be given for the ongoing work of the library.
You can also leave a lasting gift to the community by including the River Falls Public Library in your estate planning.
The River Falls Library Foundation provides funding and support for projects outside of the scope of the library’s regular budget. The Foundation has played a major role in all the library’s building projects, including the current building (1997), lower level construction (2003), and the 2009 remodeling project. They also provided half the funding for the electronic signboard.
The Foundation underwrites the cost of the children’s annual Summer Library Program, funds library technology purchases, financially supports programming and gallery exhibits, and purchases new bestsellers, as well as other projects as requested by staff. The Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization. Annual membership is just $5 for individuals and $15 for families.
