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.

You can even raise funds for the library just by using your computer to search for information or do your shopping. Once you add the Friends of the Caestecker Public Library GoodShop toolbar for Internet Explorer or Firefox, each time you shop at one of the more than 2,500 participating stores, a percentage of what you spend will be donated to us at no extra cost to you. You could even save money, as the toolbar provides coupons and deals. The toolbar also has a search box and each time you search the Internet, about a penny is donated to us. No registration is required. Interested? Head here:
