Volunteer Your Time

Did you know that over a million items are checked out of Porter County libraries every year? That's a lot to put back on the shelves! We rely on volunteers to help us with shelving and many other tasks around the library. If you are interested in volunteering with us, contact your local branch or fill out a volunteer application.

Donate Your Items

Any of our branches will accept donations of books, CDs, and DVDs in good condition. We will check to see if the item is needed on the shelves of one of our branches. If it isn't, it may be used a prize for summer reading or donated to the Friends of the Library to be sold.

Donate Money

The library is always happy to accept a cash donation. As a thank you, we can commemorate your donation with a bookplate in one or more of our books.

Join the Friends of the Library

The Friends of the Library help further our mission by raising funds and promoting the library. Support their efforts by joining the Friends of the Library and take advantage of membership benefits!

Shop at Library Booksales

The Friends of the Library sponsor booksales at all our branches throughout the year. All proceeds of these sales benefit the libraries of the Porter County Public Library System.
