The library happily receives donations in a variety of forms and therefore uses them in a variety of ways. If you have gently used books, movies, music CDs, audio books or magazines that you no longer have use for, we can use them! Most will go into our book sales, but sometimes we find items among our donations that make wonderful additions to the library collection. Donating materials to the library is a terrific way to recycle.
Of course, we’re always thrilled to receive monetary donations as well. These range from folks dropping their spare change into the "One for Books" container at the checkout desk (it adds up!) to donations in celebration or memory of a loved one, to an annual gift to the library, Friends, or the library’s Foundation. No matter the size or the frequency, we are always grateful to our patrons for their generosity. Right now the library is raising funds to furnish our new lower level meeting room. Please consider making a gift to the "Save a Seat for Me!" fundraiser by December 31, 2016.
You can even raise funds for the library just by shopping. By starting at smile.amazon.com, you can select the Friends of the Caestecker Library as a charity to receive Amazon's donations (a percentage of the dollar amount of your transaction). It doesn't cost you anything extra, and the friends receive a quarterly deposit. Check it out here.
Donations made to the library, whether cash or in kind, are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law.
