Ways You Can Support Your Library

With nearly 19,134 on-site visits in 2021, and more than 77,346 items circulated annually, LaGrange Association Library is a tremendous resource for our community.

Public funding (87% of the annual budget) enables LaGrange to be a responsive community resource; the private donations of a generous, dedicated community make LaGrange Association Library an exceptional service. Please keep LaGrange Association Library exceptional with your gift. Donors are recognized in the Annual Report (unless anonymity is requested). Donations may be made online, by mail, or in person. We accept PayPal, checks payable to LaGrange Association Library, or cash. Contributions to LaGrange Association Library, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.

Annual Fund

Public funds alone do not provide for the many programs and services our constituents require. Your donation, whatever the amount, helps us to meet the informational, educational, cultural, and entertainment needs of the community. You may designate your contribution for a specific service area or program, if you so choose. Special recognition is available for gifts of $5,000 and above.


Memorial Gifts

Consider making a donation in honor or memory of a friend or loved one. We will inform the individual or family of your thoughtful gesture and include the honorary/memorial information in the donor recognition.

Another option is to make a Buy-a-Book donation (ranging from $20 to $1,500+), which purchases new books for the Library in your name or in memory/honor of someone you choose. A permanent book plate with the donor or designee’s name is placed inside the front cover of the book(s). Please contact Library Director Mary De Bellis by phone at (845) 452-3141 or email at mdebellis@laglib.org for further information.


Charitable Bequests

Designating LaGrange Association Library as a beneficiary in your will ensures an exceptional Library for future generations. Bequests (and other forms of planned gifts) have an enduring impact on Library programs and services and provide for long-term growth. Feel free to contact Library Director Mary De Bellis by phone at (845) 452-3141 or email at mdebellis@laglib.org to discuss your options.
