Buy A Book

Yes! I want to Buy A Book! I want to help Arlington Public Library buy more new books.

It’s a great way to commemorate a birthday, an anniversary, for a memorial or just for the fun of it! Notification of the gift can be sent to the designee. All donations are used to buy new materials for the library.


When you contribute $25 or more to Arlington Public Library, your name, or the name of the person you choose to honor will be printed on a bookplate and placed in a new book that will circulate throughout the library system.


The Friends of the Library are a 501(c)(3) organization. Your donation to the Friends is tax-deductible.  Matching gift? Check your company’s policy.

What do I do?
