Westlake Porter Library accepts monetary gifts for the purchase of new materials for the collection. Specific titles, general subject areas, or genres may be requested for purchase. Purchased items will have a gift plate acknowledging the donation. Items may be donated by individuals, families, organizations, or in memory of someone.
Please check with library staff before donating specific titles to ensure they are not already owned, and are appropriate for the collection or call Mary Worthington at 440-871-2600. You can download and print our Library Gift and Donations Guide. The guide is in PDF format and requires Adobe Reader, which is a free download.
Used items may be donated to the Friends of the Library via the Book Nook Used Book Store in the lobby of the library. Items will be sold in the Book Nook or at the annual book sale to raise money for the Friends organization which then uses the money to fund ongoing library initiatives.
