We love you, you love us: there are lots of ways that you can show your support for the Cudahy Family Library!

Make a Donation – your donations are tax-deductible and can support library programming, build library collections, and improve technology and facilities. Donate to the Cudahy Family Library Endowment Fund.

Donate Materials – share your gently used books, CDs, and movies with us. We’ll check to see if we can use them in the library’s collections; if not, we’ll sell them and use the money for great library services and programs. Please note that we are no longer accepting donations of videotapes or large collections of National Geographic magazines.
