COMMUNITY

Support Your Library

Public funding provides for day-to-day operation, and community support allows us to flourish and grow. Here are ways you can help.

Give Money

Your tax-deductible cash donation is always welcome and may be given directly to the Enterprise Public Library or to the Friends of The Enterprise Public Library, a 501(c)(3) organization. Your donation will enrich, not replace, traditional tax-based funding and allow us to expand cultural programs and services.

Matching Employer Gifts

Many employers will match their employees' contributions to charitable nonprofit groups, thus increasing the size of your gift to the Enterprise Public Library. Ask your employer if they offer this program.

Legacy

Many patrons choose to include the library in their wills or trusts. Please call the Library Director at (334) 347-2636 for more information.

Memorial and In-Honor of Donations

Honor the memory of a loved one, pay tribute to family or friends, or celebrate a special occasion by donating to library. A gift may be used to memorialize a loved one, to celebrate an important occasion in the life of a friend or relative, or to enrich the library's resources.

Donate Books

The Enterprise Public Library is grateful for your donations of books and other library materials. Thousands of books are given to the library each year and hundreds are added to our shelves. The rest are sold at the Friends of the Enterprise Public Library's used book sales or in the Daily Deals section. Whether added to our collection or sold to the public, your book donation benefits the library and is tax-deductible.

Please do not donate books or other materials in poor condition. The library cannot use them and must make arrangements for disposal. If you wish to give items not included on this list, please call (334) 347-2636.

Where do the donations go?

All donated materials are reviewed by a librarian to determine if they will be added to the library's collection. Leftovers are given to the Friends of the Enterprise Public Library who then sort and shelve them for re-sale. Used book sale proceeds are donated back to the library. Books that do not sell are given to charitable and non-profit organizations.

How and where do I donate books?

Books may be donated at the library. If you bring a large donation to the library and need help unloading it, please call (334) 347-2636 in advance to make arrangements.

Is my book donation tax-deductible?

Yes. If you wish to receive a receipt which can be used for tax filing purposes, please ask your librarian for the proper form.

Volunteer Time

The Enterprise Public Library welcomes volunteers and appreciate their contributions of time and talent to assist library staff in delivering services more efficiently and effectively. Volunteers make considerable contributions throughout the library system by performing a variety of assignments including shelving books to assisting with programs and events. If you wish to volunteer, please call (334) 347-2636 or stop by the library.
