We need your support more than ever! Although tax dollars assist the library system, we need the help from other income sources in order to continue our work of helping people to read, learn and improve the quality of their lives.

Libraries Change Lives in Many Positive Ways

  • Help adults learn to read
  • Introduce children to the joys of reading and lifelong learning
  • Help students of all ages pursue their education
  • Provide vital information for people looking for a job, raising a family,
    investing for retirement or coping with a serious illness

Your Donation Will Allow Us To:

  • Keep pace with changing technology
  • Close the gap between the computer "haves" and "have nots"
  • Buy more books, computers and library materials
  • Add new and innovative services to reach out to the people with special needs

What You Will Get in return:

  • Ensure a lasting legacy for yourself or a loved one
  • The Satisfaction of knowing you helped the fight for literacy

Give a Leaf a legacy…change a life that will forever provide a lasting tribute to those you hold dear. This is your opportunity to honor or remember the memory of someone by donating an engraved leaf to be placed on the Giving Tree located on the entrance wall of the Selby Library. All proceeds to benefit the Friends of the Selby Library.
