Gifts & Donations

Memorial Gifts
A memorial gift is a lasting and thoughtful way to honor a loved one. Whether a personal book collection or a monetary gift, your thoughtful planning today enriches our library for the future. Monetary gifts become part of an endowment fund, invested through the Library Foundation, a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation, to provide interest income to the library forever.

Online Donations

A gift to the Anaheim Library Foundation will provide the support necessary for the library to continue to meet the challenges and needs of our diverse community. At any level, your gift will truly make a difference in the lives of many, for years to come.

This Adopt-A-Magazine Campaign solicits donations from individuals, clubs and organizations to support subscriptions to the magazine collections at each library facility. This campaign began in the early 1990s and continues to be an important addition to the library materials budget. Every summer the adoption lists are available to review for subscriptions for the next calendar year. An acknowledgment of your donation is posted (if desired), and a tax receipt will be mailed.

Gift Books

Give a gift that will keep on giving. You can donate a book in honor of any special occasion. We can help you select a book in a subject area that has special meaning to the recipient. A bookplate listing the donor and honoree will be placed in the front of each book.

Donation of Materials

Book donations are accepted during the Library's open hours. We accept donations of current and good conditions books, magazines, DVDs, and CDs. VHS tapes are accepted at Central Library only. 

Note: All gifts are tax deductible.
