Support Your Library

Government funding pays only a portion of the Library's operating expenses. We depend on support from generous individuals like you to help fund our collections, job search resources, Internet access, literacy classes, children’s story hours, and so much more. Your gift helps keep these vital services FREE for all residents. Thank you.


By Mail: print a donation form that can be mailed to Yates Community Library. Call 585-765-9041 for questions and assistance.

Online: You have the power to make a difference in someone's life. Information is education. Your online gift provides materials for the library that can be used by many members of the community.


Make a Matching Gift: If your employer offers a matching gift program, you can double the impact of your donation.

Many companies offer matching gift programs that will double, even triple a donation's value. Check with your company to find out if your company will match your contribution to YCL. (If you have questions about your company's matching gift program, please contact your personnel office.)

Once you have determined that your company matches donations made to YCL, we can help you initiate the matching gift contribution. Please contact us.

  Make a Memorial Donation “In Honor” or “In Memory Of” or
  Sponsor a Paver for the Memorial Garden: Make a donation to honor someone special. Donations can be made online, in person, or by mail to celebrate a birthday, anniversary, or the memory of a loved one.
  Sponsor a Magazine Subscription Have a favorite magazine you can't get enough of and think others will love it too? Consider sponsoring a subscription. You can even make a donation to honor someone special. Be sure to contact the Director before you subscribe for any magazines you would like the libray to lend. We may save you money by placing the order through our vendor. You can sponsor magazines we already subscribe to as well as those we do not. Donations can be made online, in person, or by mail.

Gift your gently used books, magazines, and puzzles to the library.

Already read those books but don’t want to just toss them? Gift them to your library! Nobody loves books as much as we do, and if we can’t use them in the collection, we can place them in the Book House and find a home for them. Simply call to notify us about your donation.
