Not all contributions need to be monetary gifts. The Maple Lake Library can always use your donations of everyday items such as copier paper, printer ink, and packing tape. We also have great need of new DVDs, large-print books, and audio books.
With lots of people giving small gifts, we can keep our doors open. It's that simple.
Tell your friends an family about these many ways you can support the Maple Lake Library:
Adopt-a-MediaThis is a great way to commemorate a special event in your life or to memorialize a loved one. Your donation of money will be used to purchase the book or DVD you indicate. A bookplate inside the front cover will tell everyone who checks it out that you cared enough to share your special memory with the patrons of the Maple Lake Library. You can pick up an Adopt-a-Media form at the check-out desk. Call Kath Heffron if you have questions: 612-270-3476.
Wishing TreeBy the front door is a tree with lots of little notes hanging from its branches. This is our "Wishing Tree." You are invited to take off a note and bring it back with your donation item. The notes have ideas for all sorts of useful items we need: staples, toner, movie DVDs, post-it notes, highlighters, and more.
No extra cost to you! Buy your lawn fertilizer from Buffalo Country Store or use CLC as your lawn care company, and they will donate a portion of the sales to the Maple Lake Library. This is the easiest way to donate AND keep your lawn green! Click here to download the PDF form
Community Lawn Care
The majority of our budget comes from this one fundraiser we produce every year. You can make this event a success by purchasing a dinner ticket, donating a basket for the silent auction, bidding on auction items, and spreading the word to your friends.
Donation JarMany businesses in town will have a glass jar with the Maple Lake Library logo on it. The next time you are shopping and have spare change, please drop it in the donation jar. It all adds up!
