In the wake of the recent hurricanes, wildfires, and earthquakes, I’d like to donate to the recovery efforts. Where can I find information about reputable charities?

When donating money to a charity, you naturally want to choose organizations which will use their funds efficiently and effectively. You also want to avoid fake charities set up to take scam well-intentioned donors. The library has collected a list of resources you can use to investigate the legitimacy of organizations claiming to be charities, as well as how various nonprofit organizations spend the money they receive.

My Mother Loves To Read But Is Not Able To Drive. Do You Deliver Books To People Who Aren't Able To Get To The Library?

Yes, the library does offer a homebound delivery service and Books By Mail to those customers who are physically unable to travel to their library branch. This option is offered through our Outreach Services department. Customers who qualify for homebound delivery can request their own items, or have Outreach staff select materials based on their reading preferences.

Perhaps you just want to make some new friends who share your interest in books? Well, book discussion groups are a perfect way to accomplish any or all of these goals.
