Supporting Your Library

How you can help the Library


Volunteers are always needed! We depend on our volunteers to help keep the library open. Some of the tasks include:

  • check materials in and out
  • shelve materials
  • clean books
  • monitor computer use
  • verify applications for library cards

If you are interested in volunteering, give us a call at 243-1981.

  Library Wish List

There are many opportunities for support. Not only will we always accept your donations of books or cash, you may also support us by donating the following specific needs:
  • Austin American Statesman: a one-year subscription
  • Periodical subscriptions: general interest, teen,  homemaking, sports, entertainment
  • Garfield Branch: The District has built a branch in Garfield at 5121 Albert Brown Drive in Garfield. Planned as a joint use project, the existing building houses a cafe as well as a library. The District has renovated the building, installed furniture and Internet stations, purchased books and other materials.  Please contact us if you're interested in making a donation to support this project.
