We could not offer all of the materials and services we do without the generosity of the community. If you are interested in contributing to the library, there are several options:
Donations for Memorials
Purchase materials for the library in honor, or in memorial, of another. For donations of $20 or more a bookplate may be placed in purchased materials. To do so, fill out this form and return it to the library. The form can also be used if no bookplate is desired.
Donor Directive Form
Donate funds to the library and the community. Using this form, you may leave it to us to determine how they would best benefit the library at this time, or you may designate an area where you would like to see the funds applied.
Donate to the Great Falls Public Library Foundation
There are many ways to support the Library Foundation: through an annuity, will or living trust, permanent endowment, donation of assets from a qualified retirement plan, cash gifts, or donations of securities or savings bonds. Your employer may match your donation, as do many companies. Or your employer may have a giving program that contributes funding to nonprofit organizations such as the Library Foundation. Because the Great Falls Public Library Foundation is a 501(c)3 charitable organization, gifts to the Foundation are tax-exempt.
Become a Volunteer
Volunteer your time at the library. There are many opportunities to volunteer at the library and we have large numbers of community members who work with us every month. If you are interested in donating some of your time to the library, contact or by telephone at 453-0349.
Become a Friend of the Library
Friends of the Library is a volunteer organization that values, supports and champions the public library in ways that can include, but are not limited to, advocacy, sponsorship and organizing special events and projects for the library. As a Friends' member you can choose your own level of involvement. You may opt for an active role, such as attending meetings, volunteering, organizing and working on projects, or you may prefer to support the library through membership dues alone. Whatever you choose, your involvement is important to the library and the community.
The Great Falls Public Library encourages and welcomes donations of materials to be used for the benefit of the Library. The viability of collections depend, to some extent, upon the generosity of people willing to support the Library through their contributions. You can download a Gift Materials form, which also explains guidelines for types of materials the library can accept, or contact the library at
453-0349 for more information.
Here's a great way to show pride in your library. We have a growing selection of cool gear available for purchase: t-shirts and fleece vests for adults and kids, book journals, book bags, key chains and lots more. Check out the gear the next time you're in the library.
