Support Us

There are many ways you can support the Library. Every contribution, no matter how small, helps the Library grow and thrive. Learn more about becoming a member or making a financial contribution.

Donate Your Gently-Used Books, Music, and Movies

We welcome donations of used books, audio books, CDs, and DVDs in very good condition for our used book store. We do not accept magazines, records, music tapes, VHS tapes, encyclopedias, textbooks, instruction manuals or Readers Digest Condensed Books. Any items that are torn, dirty, written in or have a musty odor will be refused or discarded.

Donations can be brought to the Book Seller, our used book shop, when it is open. Book Seller volunteers will not lift heavy boxes.

Please call the Library for more information at (203)265-6754.

Make a Memorial or Honorary Donation

The Library is happy to accept requests for donations in memory or in honor of someone.

If you would like to donate a book, please fill out a memorial/honorary book form with names and addresses of donors and recipients. The Library will choose and purchase a book. A plate with the person’s name will be placed on the inside cover and acknowledgments will be sent to the closest relative.

If you would like to contribute to the Library Development Fund, which supports library programs and services, you may use cash, check or credit card. To make a memorial donation online, please fill out our Library Development Fund contribution form and include the name of the person you are honoring in the “Additional Comments” field. Let us know if you would like us to send an acknowledgment to the recipient or closest relative.

If you are an Amazon customer, use Amazon Smile and select Wallingford Public Library Association as your charitable organization. It’s the same Amazon shopping experience, and Amazon will donate 0.5% of the price of your eligible purchases to the Library.

 

Volunteer Your Time

The Library is privileged to have an active volunteer force of high school students and adults. Volunteers help keep our shelves in order, run the book shop, and participate in other special projects. Please download and return a volunteer application or pick one up at the Information Desk if you are interested. We do not have any remaining volunteer slots for summer 2018. We will begin accepting applications for fall in late August. Contact Deborah Ward, Volunteer Coordinator, at (203)265-6754 or dward@wallingfordlibrary.org with any questions.
