There are lots of ways to help the library!

Monetary Donations

The Skaneateles Library is an association library that receives significant financial support from the taxpayers of the Skaneateles Central School District, with the remainder of our operating budget coming from fundraising, investment income and other contributions.

Monetary donations in any amount are always appreciated and can be made online with a credit card by clicking the button below. If your donation is given in honor or memory of someone, please click “Write a Note” to include the name of the honoree and the name and address of the person you’d like us to notify.

Checks can be made out to Skaneateles Library and mailed or delivered to the library, attention Nickie Marquis.

Shop on Amazon

Have you heard about Amazon Smile? If you use Amazon, you can benefit the library through your regular shopping. Simply log in to your regular account from and select us as the organization you’d like to support! Amazon will donate 0.5% of your total purchase back to the Skaneateles Library.

Donate Books & Materials

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the library cannot accept donations of used books or other materials at this time. We are hopeful that this will change sometime in 2021! In the meantime, you might want to check out the Friends of Tompkins County Library in Ithaca, NY, which is currently accepting donations as of Winter 2020.

In ordinary times, the library gratefully accepts donations for our book sales; proceeds support the library’s operating budget. For a full list of the items we accept, please view our Book Donation Guidelines. For information on our book sales, click here.
