Bequests & Endowments
Public libraries, like all non-profit organizations, are at the
mercy of the ever-changing economy and political whims. We weather
lean times with the help of generous estate endowments and bequests.
Our benefactors are honored in perpetuity with a brass plaque on
our Honor Roll. Won't you consider remembering us in your will?
The library always accepts books, used or new. We examine each
book to determine if it belongs in our collection, or into our ongoing
book sale. For specific books, we recommend you visit our Amazon
Wish List to see items we have need of.
ALL DONATIONS MADE TO THE SAYRE PUBLIC LIBRARY ARE TAX-DEDUCTIBLE.
Spreading the Word
Changes at the library are on-going. Perhaps you know someone
who has never even set foot into our beautiful building, or doesn't
know about our wonderful programs. So tell your friends about the
upcoming Treible lecture, or the genealogy club, or even just the
latest books we've gotten in.
Use and Attend!!
And finally, the measure of a library's success is it's usage,
so come on down and see what your favorite authors have been up
to, or attend one of our events. You won't be disappointed!
