Donations are crucial to the library. Libraries offer free access to all but -- as with any home or business -- it's money that keeps the lights on, heats the rooms, provides the staff, buys reading material and furnishings. By making a monetary donation to your public library, you are ensuring that the California community has access to all the services that the library provides. Donations of any amount are highly appreciated during any time of year and are tax deductable. Your generosity influences the amount of state and county aid our library receives. Stop by the library to fill out a donation form. You may also donate over the internet using JustGive.org.-->
