The Poudre River Library Trust is building an endowment fund for the Library District. Once the fund reaches $1 million in assets, the Libraries will be given a percentage each year for capital needs, while the corpus of the fund is retained and grown. With an endowment, the Libraries will have access to a secure and growing source of funds for years to come. Contribute to the Library Endowment online or email email@example.com for additional information.

Poudre River Friends of the Library hold several in-person and online used book sales throughout the year, with proceeds going to support Libraries programs.
Materials / Used Books
The Friends also accept donations of used books and items to stock their quarterly used book sales. Donations of up to one bag or box per person per day are accepted at the information desks at any of the three libraries. Bring donations that exceed this amount to the Webster House Administration Center at 301 E. Olive Street. Look for the glass door under the overhang on the east side driveway, towards the back parking lot of the building.
Donations for the Friends may be left outside this door on the yellow shelves. All donations are accepted on a 'no strings attached' basis and become the property of the library or the Friends of the Library.
Donations of used magazines, textbooks, and music CDs are not accepted by the library or the Friends of the Library. DVD donations will be taken by the library for use in supplementing the collection, and replacement of well used copies. Questions about donations of magazine subscriptions should be referred to Collections Development Services at 970-221-6740.
Receipts for donations are available at the circulation desks at the three libraries and at the Webster House Administrative Center. Learn more about the Friends of the Library at www.PoudreLibraries.org/friends or www.prfol.org.
