We couldn’t do it without you!
Your libraries thrive on donations! Whether it’s a monetary gift or a box of used books, every little bit helps.
Financial Gift: The library itself is unable to accept gifts of money, but if you’d like to make a financial contribution, please consider donating to our registered 501(c)3 support organization, the Friends of the Library.
Used Books: We accept gently used books for our collection and the Friends of the Library book sale. Acquisitions librarians will decide which items to add to the libraries. All other items will be placed for sale with proceeds benefiting the FOL. Due to limited sale space and staff time, we cannot accept damaged items, textbooks, or outdated materials. You may opt to receive a receipt for your donated books when you drop them off. Sorry, we are not allowed to estimate value, though we will note the quantity you bring in.
The Friends of the Library are civic-minded people from all walks of life who care for and take pride in their local library as a cultural institution vital to our democracy and freedom. They make personal contributions of money to the library through the Friends organization. Some of them contribute hours of work each month to help the library function or to make its grounds more attractive, and some will even serve as public advocates when library needs are being considered by governmental entities.
With the help of the Friends, Augusta County Library offers vibrant family events, provides staff with ongoing training to increase their knowledge base, and much more. Visit the Friends’ website to learn more about becoming a member. We simply couldn’t do it without our Friends!
Do you like meeting new people? Giving back to the community? If you said yes, then you might be the person we need to help at one of our five locations. The benefits of volunteering are many, whether you are young and need to gain work experience, or you’re retired and want to share your expertise with others.
Your local libraries depend on dedicated people to shelve, teach classes, cover books, help with events, landscape, assist with book sales, and a variety of other jobs. For more information on volunteering at the Fishersville Main Library, contact Volunteer Coordinator, Daza Craig via phone at (540) 885-3961 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you’d like to volunteer at one of our branches, please contact that location directly.
Every month we featured one especially dedicated individual as our Augusta County Library Volunteer of the Month. Read more about that person here!
