Our Library is a financially challenged Library, and as such donations on many levels are always appreciated. The Sugar Grove Public Library welcomes gifts, donations, endowments, and planned giving that support the Library mission and scope of service. All donations may be subject to Director or Board approval depending upon the nature of the donation.

DONATE - Amazon Smile Wishlist
We have created a wishlist of day-to-day items, needs for programming, office supplies, and also unique items for the collection. You may order from the list and items will be shipped directly to the Library.
How to Order:
If you use the "Smile.Amazon" (instead of just Amazon.com) you may select a charity or not-for-profit of your choice. Our Smile.Amazon account donates .05% of every order to the Friends of the Library. Not only will you be assisting the Library by ordering something from our wishlist, the Friends of the Library will benefit. Make sure you select the Friends of the Sugar Grove Library NFP as your cause of choice.
After that - for any Smile.Amazon account OR on regular Amazon - please go to the "Find a List" section and put in the Sugar Grove Library. You will see a picture of our Library on the profile. Select us, and then you can review what we have on the wishlist. It will be updated every month.

Donate to the P.A.C.T Fund
The Programs and Community Together Fund, or P.A.C.T. began in 2015 with a generous and anonymous donation to the Library. This donation was specifically earmarked for programs with priority given to ones that benefit adults or community at large. Since the emergence and ongoing support of the P.A.C.T. fund an incredible range of programs has been presented and well attended by the community.
Donations given to support the P.A.C.T are readily accepted.
Volunteers shelve books, take care of the grounds (weeding, planting, cleaning outside), assist during the summer reading program, and help with other special projects and events. The library would not function without the help of our strong volunteer team. Volunteers are extremely valued members of our library team! To be considered for a volunteer position (non-summer volunteer) at the library, please fill out this application and email or drop off to Amanda Tate.
TEEN VOLUNTEER Opportunities
Teen Library Leaders
- Teens in grades 6-12 are encouraged to join our Teen Library Leaders monthly program. During this program, teens help create displays, discuss what types of books and programs the library should have, and help with other creative projects in the Teen Department. This is a great opportunity to socialize with other teens who also love their library! One hour of community service is earned for each meeting.
- To register, check the calendar and search "Teen Library Leaders" meetings.
