Monetary Donations



Give the gift of a Friends of Beebe Library membership to someone else or to yourself. Membership dues go to support library programs, and your recipient gets free entry to the Preview Night of the annual book sale. You can use a membership form (be sure to note both donor and recipient names and addresses for gift memberships). You will also have the options to give additional donations or recurring donations.


Already a member? You can always make an additional gift! Your gifts and/or donations are tax deductible.



Shop online via*. First sign up at and choose Friends of Beebe Library as your charity. Then either navigate to one of more than 1,700 participating online stores from the iGive web site, or install the optional iGive browser button, which activates automatically when you go directly to the stores' web sites. A percentage of what you spend will be donated to the Friends. More details are available from the iGive web site.






Employer matching.
