Thank you for considering a donation to the Palatine Library.
A library donation is a meaningful way to celebrate friends and family. Your gift is the perfect way to remember the achievement, birthday, anniversary, or life of a loved one. Memorial gifts preserve the legacy of those remembered and honor the surviving family as well.
Deliver or mail it with your check to:
Palatine Public Library District
700 N. North Court
Palatine, IL 60067
Make checks payable to Palatine Public Library District.
Books, Movies, and Other Items
We gladly accept your donations of gently used books, CDs, DVDs, and related materials. Thank you!
All donations are subject to approval. We reserve the right to decline a donation that is not consistent with the policies, programs, and interests of the Library District. For more information, read Policy 7-8 Donations of Materials.
Renovation Naming Opportunities
As part of our interior renovation plans starting Fall 2020, we are making available an even greater way for our community to become involved. Make an investment into your community by supporting the Library with a donation in exchange for naming a section of the Library for yourself or a loved one.
Gifts and donations are a vital way to support the future of the Library, its collections, services, and programs.
Financial donations are available in several dollar amount increments, ranging from $5,000 to $50,000. The naming time period for each space is determined by the level of donation commitment.
A plaque will be added to the space in honor of your donation. Donors will also be recognized in our newsletter, on digital monitors in the Main Library, and listed on our website. Donors will be invited to attend any ribbon-cutting ceremonies.
