Support Your Library
There are many ways you can support or contribute to your local Timberland library, and we are grateful for your interest and patronage.
Thursday, April 23, 2020 is the second annual #LibraryGivingDay – an event that gives library lovers a chance to support their local library. The event, created by the Seattle Public Library Foundation began in 2019. The first Library Giving Day helped participating libraries nationwide raise much needed funding.
We would be honored, especially during this very difficult time in history, if you would make an online donation to Timberland Regional Library.
This Donate link will take you to PayPal where you can login or use a credit card if you do not already have an account.
If you are on a public computer, we urge you to use a QR reader on your personal device to access our PayPal Donation site by scanning this QR code.
If you are unable to contribute financially, please consider sharing a favorite library memory on social media using #LibraryGivingDay. We appreciate your support!
Private gifts provide crucial support for a wide range of library programs and services. Please contact your local library for more information or you can mail designated donations to TRL Administrative Service Center, Attn: Finance Office, 415 Tumwater Blvd. S.W., Tumwater, WA 98501.
Timberland Regional Library is not a 501c3, however, a gift to a local government entity is tax deductible if it is solely for “public purposes".
The IRS Code, at 26 U.S.C. §170(c)(1), defines "charitable contribution" (which is tax deductible) to include "a contribution or gift” to or for the use of: A State, a possession of the United States, or any political subdivision of any of the foregoing, or the United States or the District of Columbia, but only if the contribution or gift is made for exclusively public purposes.
It is always a good idea to check with your accountant.
Books, CD’s, or other items are not being accepted during our emergency closure – your gifts are appreciated and will be accepted after we re-open to the public with the following provisions: Donate Used Material FAQ
