Support Your Library

Here are several ways you can help your local library.


We need your time, talent, and dedication. Many volunteer opportunities are available at all of our library locations, including:

  • Shelving books
  • Delivering materials in our Homebound Service
  • Being a puppeteer
  • Much, much more

We need both short-term and long-term volunteers. Children who have completed 7th grade may volunteer at Siouxland Libraries. Parental consent must be obtained for applicants under 18 years of age.

Print the volunteer application form (at right) and return it to any branch of Siouxland Libraries.

For more information, call 367-8720.

Donations of Books and Media

We accept children’s and teen books, DVDs, music CDs and books on CD. We accept books for adults that are published within the last two years. Donations need to be in good condition. Bring your donations to the Main Library.

Memorial and Honorary Gifts

A special way to honor friends and loved ones, and at the same time support your community, is to have a book, several books or other materials purchased for the library with your monetary donation. You may do this to celebrate:

  • Birthdays
  • Birth of a child
  • Retirement
  • Other special occasions
  • Someone's life (Memorial)

Each item will have a bookplate identifying the donor and the person being honored.

To make a donation, print the Gifts & Memorials Form (at right) and mail it to Siouxland Libraries. Forms are also available at any Siouxland Libraries location. For more information, call 367-8700.

Endowment and Memorial Funds

Individuals or organizations may establish memorial or endowment funds by giving a considerable donation to purchase materials in honor or memory of someone special over an extended period of time. Memorial or endowment funds may also be established to meet other operating needs of the library. For more information, call 367-8700.
