Donations of Money
Your financial support has tangible impact: more programs for kids, teens, and adults; better infrastructure; and deeper collections. Your donations are tax deductible. We are a not-for-profit 501(c)(3), and our EIN, which you may need for your corporate matching gift program, is 81-4436289. For your convenience, you may donate now with a credit card using PayPal.
Donations of Books, Audio Books, CDs, and DVDs
The library welcomes donations of books, audio books, CDs, and DVDs in good condition, with media cases intact. Please leave your donation by Beatley's circulation desk in the designated area. Donations are tax deductible. We are a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) and give receipts for your donations. Your donations help the Library serve our entire community in the best way possible. See donation criteria here. Please note that due to preparations for the 2020 Spring Book Sale and clean-up afterward, the Friends are not able to accept donations between March 1 and April 15. During that time, please donate your books and media to one of these Alexandria libraries: Barrett (717 Queen Street), Burke (4701 Seminary Road), or Duncan (2501 Commonwealth Avenue).
Donations of Time
Please donate time by volunteering. Our volunteers work on book sales, membership, outreach, advocacy, fundraising, special programs, leadership, administration, and maintaining our presence on social media. We can find a use for your skill set and availability.
