There are lots of ways to help the library!
|Shop on Amazon
Have you heard about Amazon Smile? If you shop on Amazon.com, you can benefit the library through your regular shopping. Simply use this link next time you shop, and Amazon will donate 0.5% of your total purchase back to the Skaneateles Library.
|Donate Books & Materials
The library accepts book donations, generally from September through the end of May. Our most accepted items are books, DVDs and audio books. We cannot accept encyclopedias, textbooks, magazines or VHS/cassette tapes. For more information about our upcoming book sales click here.
|Gifts from Businesses
Generous donations such as gift cards and prizes can be used by the library to promote reading and literacy, engagement with the community and more. If you would like to donate on behalf of your business, please contact us.
Looking to spend some time helping your community? Do you have a talent, hobby or skill that you’d like to share with others?
We need volunteers who can assist with:
- Programs for all ages (crafts, demos, etc.)
- Teaching a skill
- One-on-one computer help
- Special projects as needed
The library also depends on volunteers to sort donated books from September through June and to run book sales. All proceeds raised support library operations.
The Skaneateles Library is an association library that receives significant financial support from the taxpayers of the Skaneateles Central School District, with the remainder of our operating budget coming from fundraising and investment income. Any monetary donations are always appreciated. To donate to the library online please click here.
