With nearly 202, 483 on-site visits in 2019, and more than 234, 542 items circulated annually, Niagara Falls Public Library is a tremendous resource for our Western New York community. Public funding (90 % of the annual budget) enables the library to be a responsive community resource; the private donations of a generous, dedicated community make Niagara Falls Public Library an exceptional service. Please keep Niagara Falls Public Library exceptional with your gift. Donors are recognized in the Annual Report (unless anonymity is requested). Donations may be made online, by mail, or in person. We accept credit card e-payment, checks payable to Niagara Falls Public Library, or cash.

Annual Fund

Public funds alone do not provide for the many programs and services our constituents require. Your donation, whatever the amount, helps us to meet the informational, educational, cultural, and entertainment needs of the community. You may designate your contribution for a specific service area or program, if you so choose. Special recognition is available for gifts of $5,000 and above.


Memorial Gifts

Consider making a donation in honor or memory of a friend or loved one. We will inform the individual or family of your thoughtful gesture and include the honorary/memorial information in the donor recognition.

Buy a Book

Your Buy-a-Book donation (ranging from $20 to $1,500+) purchases new books for the Library in your name or in memory/honor of someone you choose. A permanent book plate with the donor or designee’s name is placed inside the front cover of the book(s).

Charitable Bequests

Designating Niagara Falls Public Library as a beneficiary in your will ensures an exceptional Library for future generations. Bequests (and other forms of planned gifts) have an enduring impact on Library programs and services and provide for long-term growth. Feel free to contact the library to discuss your options.

Matching Gifts

Many corporations will match contributions made to non-profit organizations by current or retired employees. Call your human resources department to find if and how they will match your gift to Niagara Falls Public Library.
