Donate to the Friends
The Friends of the Fletcher Free Library welcomes community support in a variety of ways, including monetary donations and book donations. Since the Friends is the non-profit 501(c)(3) for the Fletcher Free Library, your donations go to support the superb programming and services the Library provides to the community, and your donation to the Friends of the Fletcher Free Library is tax deductible according to IRS regulations.
There are a few ways you can make monetary donations to the Friends:
Credit/Debit card via Paypal.
By check, payable to the Friends of the Fletcher Free Library and sent to:
Friends of the Fletcher Free Library

You can also do any of these things (and even donate cash!) in person at the Fletcher Free Library’s Main Desk.
We are happy to accept donations of books in good condition, CDs or DVDs in original packaging, as well as collectible older books in reasonable condition. We raise thousands of dollars each year selling books you have donated to the Friends. If you are donating 50 or fewer books, just bring them to the Main Desk and library staff will help you. If you have more to give, or to learn more about book donations, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (802) 264-1970. We will arrange a time for you to drop off your donation.
If you wish that your donated books be added to the Library's collection, please inform us before donating. See our Collection Development Policy for more information.
