Tax Deductible

All donations to the Friends of TSCPL are tax deductible. The person receiving your donation should ask if you would like a letter acknowledging your donation. You will be given a green slip to fill out so a letter can be sent to you. The Friends do not assign value to your donation. If you need an itemized list, you will need to make a list and attach it to the letter you receive from us.

How to Donate

  • Friends donation boxIf you have just a few items to donate, you can take them to the Chandler Booktique in the library.
  • Also there is a white donation box inside the drive to the dock area (west side of library). View location map. This donation box is best used if you have a few items and do not want a letter for your taxes.
  • If you have a box or more, you may take your donation to the library’s loading dock area. If the dock doors are not open, there is a white doorbell up by the back door. Please ring the doorbell and someone will assist you. You could call ahead at 580-4400 or 580-4445 to make sure someone is available to meet you. The best times to bring donations to the dock are from 7:30 a.m.–4 p.m., Monday through Friday.
