Support Your Library

Due to decreased library funding from the state, libraries are even more dependent upon their communities for support. Sometimes this means creating new fundraisers to support the library. And sometimes this means looking for other ways to accept donations. If you are looking for a way to support the library, check out this page for ideas!

Book Sale and Rummage Sale

The library accepts donations of books, DVD’s, and CD’s all year round for our annual book sale in June.  You can also donate clean, used items, such as clothing or housewares, twice yearly on specially designated donation days at the Fredericksburg Community Center right before our semi-annual rummage sales.

Gift Book Program

Is there a special occasion or a special someone that you wish to recognize or remember? What better way to do so than to give a donation in honor of or in memory of that person! Download the Gift Book Program brochure for more information or to give today.


We always welcome volunteers here at the library. If you have just a little time once or twice a year, you could help out with the twice yearly rummage sale or the annual book sale. If you have more time to commit, you might think about volunteering regularly–it is a great way to learn about the library and all the ways in which we serve the community. We also provide local volunteer opportunities for students. Call the library to talk to Mrs. Sheila Redcay, director of the library, about volunteering.

Recycle Your Ink Cartridges

We accept empty inkjet cartridges to be recycled (sorry no laser/toner cartridges accepted); the receptacle to receive empty inkjet cartridges is located under the community bulletin board in front of the front desk.  Cartridges are collected as a fundraiser for the library; the library receives up to $4.00/empty inkjet cartridge collected.  By recycling your inkjet cartridges you’re both cutting down on waste and supporting your library!

For your convenience, the library now accepts monetary donations through PayPal. Contribute to the library by clicking on the Donate button. Thank you!
