Donations

To donate books and other materials to the library please contact us. While we welcome donations, we do not always have room to store them before our next sale so it is always best to call first before loading up your car!

The library is always seeking financial donations to help us provide the best possible service to the community. Our address is: Pleasant Valley Library, PO Box 633 Pleasant Valley, NY 12569. Remember, your donation is tax deductible.

Gift Planning

Ensure that your support will live on as an ongoing gift to future generations by including the Pleasant Valley Library in your estate plans. Making a planned gift provides needed resources for future Library users. Your gift can extend the joy you have experienced at the Library to others, while giving you substantial financial benefits and tax savings.

A legacy gift represents your values and creates a lasting impact. You may choose to designate support for general purposes of the Library, or your favorite section or function of the Library, such as children’s programming, exhibitions, library staff development, etc. Either way, you will feel deeply rewarded by the knowledge that your investment will have a beneficial impact on our community for years to come.

There are a variety of ways to make a charitable, planned gift. One of the simplest is to give through your will or living trust. You can also make the Library a beneficiary of your retirement plan. Please email the director at PVFLibrary@gmail.com for more information.

Volunteers are welcome! If you are interested in volunteering you can click here to print out the volunteer application and drop it by the library, or just come in and fill out the application on the spot. When a need arises which matches your expressed interests and scheduled availability, the library will contact you.

Friends of the Library

The Friends of the Pleasant Valley Free Library is an association of people interested in the Library. We aim to focus attention on the Library and to encourage the use of the Library’s resources and services. We support the Library Board through appropriate donations of materials and equipment, and we encourage gifts and contributions to the Library. We work closely with the Library Director and Staff to support library services and programs.

Our income is mainly from fundraisers, including our Spring Book Fair and special sales throughout the year, and projects such as our Cook Book.

We invite you to join us. Participation in activities is important and lots of fun, for example: On a spring afternoon, you can browse through thousands of books, meet neighbors, new people, and help the library, or you might have your own project idea, and that would be wonderful.
