Give Your Library a Book in Honor of a Special Person

What a great gift idea! Mail or bring this form to the Library. You may suggest your donation be used to purchase material in an area of special interest, such as children’s books or large print; or a specific subject, e.g., hobbies, sports, etc. And your donation is tax deductible!

When a donation is made, an acknowledgement card is sent to the honoree. The material is held at the Main Desk for one week so the honoree may see it first. What a wonderful way to remember your relatives and friends.

Help Neighbors in Need!

Food donationsThe Southampton Community Cupboard is our town’s food pantry. It provides supplemental food to those in need with discretion and compassion. When you bring in a non-perishable donation to the library, you will get a raffle ticket for a monthly prize as a way of saying thank you for your thoughtfulness.  Congrats to Louise who won the April raffle!
