Make a Donation?

The Sparta Public Library accepts many types of donations. We can accept gifts of cash or check. We also welcome donations in honor of a loved one or the donation of items for our collection and book sale.


Memorial books are selected by the Head Librarian based on suitability and needs of the community. Monetary gifts may be given for memorial books which are selected by the Head Librarian. A patron may donate a suitable book of his/her choosing with non-fiction books preferred for the memorial. All memorial books are labeled with a bookplate. The honoree’s family is notified of the gift, and a letter of thanks is written to the donor. Monetary gifts are accepted and placed in the library memorial fund account. If not specified for a memorial book, other purchases may be made with board approval.
