Your Support Helps The Library Thrive

Without the support of the community and the patrons of PCPLS, we wouldn’t be able to provide services to community or events for our patrons. It’s because of your support, we’re able to provide library materials like books, movies, ebooks, emagazines, and the latest in technology.

How You Can Help

Donate Directly to the Library

The Library accepts monetary donations to directly support the Library and the Library Garden.

We are currently unable to accept donations of books or other materials at any branches at this time. Please check with your local Goodwill, Salvation Army, and other resale shops for donation options.

Donate to the PCPLS Endowment

Did you know that PCPLS also has an endowment established to support our Library? By clicking the link below, you can give money to help this endowment grow and support the library for years to come.


Thank you for your interest in volunteering at your library! Opportunities vary and can include outdoor maintenance, light cleaning, and shelving books.  Due to the high demand for volunteer opportunities, it is not guaranteed that your preferred branch location will be accepting volunteers at the time of your application. Please fill out the form below, and a member of the PCPLS team will be in contact with you about your application within 1-2 weeks.
