The Jamestown Philomenian Library is always grateful for support, whether it comes in the form of a financial donation, donation of materials, or donation of time as a volunteer. Thank you for your interest in supporting your Library!
There are many ways you can help support the operations of the Jamestown Philomenian Library.
- In Memorium - We gratefully accept donations made in memorium of a loved one. Please use PayPal (found on the Home page) or send a check made out to the Jamestown Philomenian Library to 26 North Road, Jamestown, RI 02835 along with a notation of the name for whom the gift is being made. You will receive an acknowledgment of your donation via mail.
- Birthday Books Donation - What better way to celebrate a child's birthday than to make a donation to the library which will be used to purchase a book for the Children's Department? Please use PayPal (found on the Home page) or send checks made out to the Jamestown Philomenian Library to 26 North Road, Jamestown, RI 02835 along with the name and address of the birthday child. You will receive a timely acknowledgment of your donation and the birthday boy or girl will receive a card in the mail, notifying him/her of your generous gift. Please also note how you would like to be acknowledged in the bookplate which is inserted into the new book. Birthday books can also be purchased for adults.
- Book Donations - Books must be clean and mold free. In order to process donations, we appreicate small sized donations of three to four bags at one time (during COVID, we can only accept up to 10 items at a time due to quarantine and storage). We cannot accept encyclopedias, magazines, VHS or audio cassettes. Book donations that are not incorporated into the library collection are often included in one of annual book sales.
