The Liberty Library is a non-profit organization and tax-exempt under section 501(c)(3). We get some funding from the communities of Liberty and Montville, but we also do fundraising throughout the year in order to support our collection and programs. There are several ways in which you can help:
Money donations are always appreciated. Donations can be made by cash, check, or click one of the the ‘Donate’ buttons above to make a donation online. The Paypal Giving Fund allows you to make a one-time donation and gives 100% of your donation to the library. The bottom button allows you to make a sustainable monthly donation. Or send a check to the Liberty Library, PO Box 280, Liberty, ME 04949. For a cash donation, you will find donation boxes at the library.
We have a Wish List on Amazon.com. If you would like to donate an item, please visit our Wishlist and purchase an item. It will be sent to the library. Let us know and we would be happy to attach a bookplate to a book with the donors name or in honor of someone.
When you shop at smile.amazon.com, Amazon donates 0.5% to charitable organization of your choice. Click here for information about how to sign-up. Please choose ‘Liberty Library Association‘. Then remember to always start your shopping at smile.amazon.com . I recommend adding it as a bookmark on your web browser.
The Library welcomes books and gifts but accepts them with the understanding that it has the right to handle or dispose of them in the best interest of the library. Materials may be added to the collection provided they meet the library’s standards of selection. If you are donating items, please make sure they are in good condition and aren’t something of an outdated or illegal format (so please, no VHS’s, tape cassettes, or copied items). The library does not appraise gifts. If the donor needs an appraisal for income tax purposes, it is the donor’s responsibility to have the appraisal made. Please view our Collection Policy.
Throughout the year, we have Pie Sales and other fundraising events. Be sure to support these events by donating and buying.
Thank you for your support!
