I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library. ~Jorge Luis Borges
Did you know that you can raise money for the library as you shop? If you purchase items through the Amazon Smile program you can designate the Raleigh County Public Libraries as your charity! You can set us as your charity quickly by clicking this link! From there if you want to purchase items on Amazon, just remember to use the http://smile.amazon.com link and we'll receive .5% of the money you spend.
Another way to support the library is through a Friends of the Library group. Beckley Friends of the Library and FOSSL, Friends of the Shady Spring Library, are the two such organizations serving Raleigh County libraries. People wishing to join pay yearly dues and help with fundraisers to raise money for their libraries.
If you do not wish to join a Friends group, you can still help them raise money for us! Both groups hold bi-annual book sales at their respective branches. Check our calendar for book sale dates, or ask at your local branch for more information.
Our libraries also take donations! Make out a check to: Raleigh County Library and drop it off at one of our branches, or send it in the mail to: 221 N. Kanawha St. Beckley, WV 25801. We can also accept cash at any of our branches or with a credit/debit card at our main branch.
Remember: donations are tax deductible, make you feel good about yourself, and really help out the library. Help us continue to improve our programs and events, and keep adding new books and technology to the library!
