Material Donations

Do you have books, movies, and music you’d like to donate? Donations are accepted year round by appointment. Donations are reviewed against our Collection Development Policy to determine if they will extend, strengthen, and complement the library’s collection. Materials not added to our collection will become part of the Friends of the Library book sales.

Monetary Donations

You can provide extra support for Sycamore Public Library through a monetary donation that will help pay for some of the extras that enhance the library’s collections, programs, and services.

No gift amount is too small and all gifts are appreciated! Consider making a gift.
