Ways to Support

You can show your support for the Library in several ways.
General Donation-make an unrestricted gift to the library.

Recognition Gifts- make a donation in honor, in celebration or in memory of a friend, colleague or loved one. Books will be placed in the library with a special bookplate honoring the named individual. An acknowledgment card will be sent to a noted designee informing them of the gift.

Library Branch Gift- make a donation to support your favorite library branch.

Literacy Gift- make a donation to ensure our literacy outreach initiatives and programs have the funding needed to successfully support citizens in under-served areas of DeKalb County.

AmazonSmile- we're a part of the AmazonSmile program.  Click here and select DeKalb Library Foundation as your AmazonSmile charity and Amazon will make a donation to us on eligible purchases. There's no cost to you. You shop, AmazonSmile donates. It's a win-win. Now that's a reason to smile!

You can also "Buy a Book" for the Library. If you notice a series or a book is missing from our collection, in the notes section of the donation page add the names of the titles and authors, and we will attempt to add the titles to the collection. Email foundation@dekalblibrary.org to learn more prior to donating in this way.
