Camanche Public Library

How to Get Involved

Your support for the library will strengthen and expand our mission to serve our community. Your support is encouraged for outreach programs, for collections, and for special projects.


Friends of the Library (Volunteer Time & Fundraisers to Support the Library)
Friends of the Library members are library lovers and community volunteers who promote library services and resources, encourage library use, share their love of books with the community, and have fun donating time to help our Camanche Public Library. Our purpose is to secure volunteers and to raise funds to lend financial support to the library. Over the years, the Friends have provided funding or volunteers for:
     Summer Reading Programs
     Senior Outreach Programs
     Book Club Books
     Library Furniture
     Interactive Children's Items
     Computers
     TVs and Stands
     Library Garden
     100 Days, Kindergarten Books
     Usborne Books

Membership in the Friends of the Library is open to any person or organization interested in our mission. Your membership dues help the Friends achieve many goals for the library. The time you give is as important as monetary donations. Friends are indispensable to the operation of the book sales, and volunteers lend a
hand at library events. Members have the satisfaction of knowing that they have helped make possible the programs that make the Camanche Public Library a tremendous asset to our community.

Library Donations & Monetary Contributions

Gifts and donations may be made to the library in a number of ways. Our library gratefully accepts your gently used books and puzzles. If we can't add your donated items to our collection, they will be included in our annual Friends of the Library book sale with proceeds supporting the library. We regret that we cannot accept books in poor condition, encyclopedia sets, textbooks, Readers Digest, or non-fiction items older than five years.


The Friends of the Camanche Public Library committee appreciates cash donations of any amount. These funds are used to support collections and programs at our library. Contributions to the Friends of the Camanche Public Library are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by the law. Please confirm with your tax advisor. Monetary donations can be brought to the library or mailed to:
