Book DonationsChildren's statue

The library is always willing to accept book donations as long as the following criteria are met:
  • Books must be like new condition
  • Clean
  • Un-damaged
All donations become property of the library. Any donated item added to the collection will become an integral part of the collection and the policy of use will follow regular library practice. Items not added to the collection may be sold, donated to other libraries or agencies, or recycled. For questions, contact the library.

Memorial Donations

The library accepts monetary donations in memory of loved ones to be used for books, furnishings or other library needs. This is also a great way to honor someone on their birthday or for any special occasion. Bookplates with the donor’s name and the honoree’s name are placed inside the cover of each book. For questions, contact the library.


The library welcomes volunteers ages 14 and up. Please contact the Children’s Librarian   or call 816-776-5104 for more information. A volunteer application is available here.
