Donations from generous individuals and institutions allow us to continually increase resources and services for our patrons.

Please consider supporting the Library today in one or more of the ways suggested below.

Donations of Materials

The Library accepts donations at this time of books published in 2016-18 in good condition. Any other items will not be accepted. These may be dropped off at any time during regular library hours, or call ahead about them. Please do not leave donations outside the library or in the book drop.

Receipts are available upon request but please note that we cannot appraise the value of donated items and receipts will reflect the description and quantity of the donation, not a monetary value.

The library accepts memorial and honorary donations as well as gifts in commemoration of special events. All memorial and honorary items will be marked with a gift plate inscribed with the name of the donor and/or the honoree and appropriate acknowledgement will be sent.

Donations of other items, including furniture, computers, artwork, and other items, are subject to approval by the Library Director and the Board of Library Trustees.

Monetary Donations

Checks can be made out to "Pine Plains Free Library" and mailed to the Pine Plains Free Library Library, PO Box 325, Pine Plains, NY 12567 along with a note specifying your name, address, amount contributed, and purpose of the donation. Or drop it off at the library--we'd love to thank you in person!
