Your financial support or donation of books and materials is always welcome by Washington County Library System at our Greenville and Leland branches.  We are sorry, but we are not able to accept book donations at our small branches.  Any size donation is appreciated and your personal and financial information will be kept confidential.  And remember, your gift is tax-deductible.


Donations may be made to the Library for the purchase of materials and other items. When a donation is received as a memorial or honorarium, the donor may designate the material or type of material to be purchased.  Acknowledgement of the gift is sent to the family of the deceased or the honoree, as well as the donor.  A book plate is placed in the book indicating the book was donated in memory of the deceased or in honor of the honoree. 

The type of book ordered will be based upon the interests of the deceased or the wishes of the donor, as well as the needs of the library. If the donor does not specify a book or subject for a specific use of the donation, it will be used for whatever materials, equipment, or programs are of greatest need for the library at the discretion of the library director .

If you would like to make a donation today, just print and complete the
donation form and mail it with your contribution to the address indicated on the form. Call (662) 335-2331 for more information.


Friends of the Library: Donations of Books and Materials

The Friends of the Library encourage gifts of books, music, recorded books, and movies. Some of these gifts are kept for the library’s collection, based on the need for the materials.  Materials that the library already owns or are not kept for the library collection for other reasons are sold on the Friend's Booksale Table to benefit the library.
