How you can help your library


The Library uses the gifts of money to purchase books, magazine, and other library materials and equipment. Donations are tax-deductible. The Federal Tax I.D. number for the Santa Clara County Library District is 35-2345011.

Every gift is important

New materials at the library

Cash donations allow the most needed materials to be purchased systematically for the library. This reduces processing costs and provides the strongest collection. Most donated used books are sold by the Friends of the Library and raise funds indirectly.

How to donate

Gifts of any size are welcome and appreciated. If you wish to make a gift of money by cash or check, please fill out the Gifts of Money form and return it to one of the Santa Clara County Library District libraries. You may also make a donation online using a credit or debit card.


Your legacy

Many patrons choose to include the library in their wills or trusts. Please call (408) 293-2326 ext. 3003 for more information.
