Why the need for donations at your local library?
Roanoke Public Library donation opportunities began with the need to supplement traditional governmental support. In recent years, library tax revenues have been on the decline. Meanwhile, the Roanoke area has experienced population growth, which has dramatically increased the need for expanded library services, materials and resources.
Donation opportunities made easy!
There are just two simple steps to make a donation to the Roanoke Public Library.
Step 1: Choose from three unique and different ways to donate that are shown below: (1) Roanoke Public Library Building Corporation (2) Book Dedications or (3) Sponsorship Programs.
The RPL Building Corporation
The Roanoke Public Library Building Corporation was established to maintain the future of the library. This corporation will provide the library with much-needed resources in coming years. All monies donated to the Roanoke Public Library Building Corporation (a 501c3 Non-profit corporation) will always be tax deductible for you and /or your organization.
A book dedication is a beautiful way to express your love and respect for someone special. It can be in honor or memory of a friend, family, business or organization. The amount of your gift is confidential and any amount can be given. An attractive bookplate will be placed in front of each book indicating to whom the book is dedicated and the name of the donor.
If you are a civic minded area business, organization or individual interested in the mutual goal of expanding library programming for all ages, sponsored programs are available. Sponsors provide the additional funding that enables the library to continue programs. Sponsoring ranges from $100-$2500. Contact the Library for sponsorship options like educational programming, individual series and others
Step 2: Fill out the donation form attached and give/mail to the Library along with your check.
Note: The Roanoke Public Library does accept gently used books and DVDs. At the Library Staff’s discretion, these items will either be added to the collection or added to our “take a book home for donation” book shelf. We do not accept VHS tapes, cassette tapes, encyclopedia, textbooks or tattered, moldy items.
Donated Magazines are kept in the crocks (near the adult magazines) and are free to take.
