Monetary contributions to the Huntsville Public Library are appreciated. The donor may specify that the contribution be used for the Collection Development, the Helen Wheat Cultural Enrichment Fund, or any other area where funding would be beneficial to the Library. Individuals may also establish an endowment to the Huntsville Public Library.
Any monetary donation may be used as a tax exemption. In addition, the Library welcomes matching donations from businesses and corporations.
The Huntsville Public Library regularly accepts donations of books from individuals. In accordance with our policy, books donated to the Library may be added to the collection or placed for sale with the proceeds going to the Library's donation fund. The Library especially needs donations of old Huntsville ISD and Sam Houston State University yearbooks.
Contributions of non-traditional items are welcome. To discuss a possible contribution of this nature, please call Linda Dodson at 936-291-5470 or by email.
Memorials or honorariums are special ways of honoring or keeping alive the memory of a loved one or friend. Monetary donations for the purchase of books are accepted as memorials. A notification will be mailed to the honoree or family of the deceased and the book will contain a bookplate to designate the memorial.
If you would like to make a memorial or honorarium donation, please call Ashley Newsome at 936-291-5481 or drop by the library.
