How Do I...?

Donate to the Library

The Library is always grateful for donations. Gifts of money, real property, and/or stock will be accepted, if conditions attached thereto are acceptable to the Board of Trustees. Outright grants or income from bequests to the Library are received and administered by the Board of Trustees, according to the wishes of the donor and the needs of the Library.

Personal property, art objects, paintings, antiques and other objects will be accepted at the discretion of the Board of Trustees.

If you are planning a bequest to the library, we recommend that an attorney be consulted. Bequests can be complex, and may come from many sources, including a Life Insurance or Pension fund. You may choose to make a gift through a Last Will and Testament or Trust, a Gift of Appreciated Securities / Stocks / Mutual Funds, a Charitable Gift Annuity, or some sort of Charitable Trust. An attorney can ensure that your gift is properly executed to give you peace of mind.
