Button (9)Tax-Deductible Donations
Looking for a place to give your tax-deductible donation? There are many opportunities for giving or sponsorship to help maintain our facilities and services at the Brookings Public Library. Your financial donation will help enhance library collections, support programs for all ages, upgrade computers and other equipment and much more. Any gift is appreciated, and no amount is too small!

Donations to Purchase Collection Items
Remember a loved one by designating your donation to purchase books, audiobooks, DVDs, or other items in our collection, in honor or in memory of someone special. Books purchased with donation money can include a bookplate recognizing your donation.

Wills and Estate Planning
You can also create a lasting legacy by naming the Library in your will or estate plan.
