Support the Library
Your gifts of support to the library make it possible for us to expand collections, develop special classes and events for the public, and more. Thank you for thinking of the library, and for helping us provide lifelong learning opportunities to our community.
Books & Media Donations
We are now accepting book and media donations at our Cherry Lane location. Staff members at our welcome station in the lobby will accept donations and issue tax receipts during library hours. Please limit your donation to one box of material at a time. Book must be published in the last 20 years and in excellent condition.
We evaluate donated items on the same basis as purchased materials. Items may be added to the library’s collection, donated to the Friends of the Meridian Library District for book sales, or disposed of at the discretion of the library. The library reserves the right to refuse donated items due to space limitations, condition of the materials, and/or requests for special treatment or tracking of donations.
- Online - We gladly accept online donations via PayPal. You can choose to make a one-time donation or set up a recurring donation.
- By mail - Monetary donations may be mailed to: 1326 W Cherry Lane | Meridian, ID | 83642. No cash, please.
- At a library location - Monetary donations may be dropped off at any location during normal business hours.
- Memorial/Honorary donation - You may choose to remember a special person or celebrate a special occasion with your donation. A letter acknowledging your donation will be sent to the honoree, or family of the person memorialized. Please include a request with your donation that includes the name of the honoree/person memorialized, the address to mail the acknowledgement, and note the donation is a memorial or honorary donation.
- Mail the request and donation to: 1326 W Cherry Lane | Meridian, ID | 83642
