Monetary Donations

All monetary donations should be directed to the Lowville Free LIbrary 5387 Dayan Street Lowville, NY 13367.  There are donation boxes at the circulation desk in  the libraries for cash donations.  Checks should be made payable to Lowville Free Library.

Employer Matching Gift
Many area employers will match charitable contributions made by their employees throughout the year. Contact your employer to inquire about matching gift options.

Memorial Gifts

A thoughtful and lasting way to celebrate a special person’s life is through a memorial gift to Lowville Free Library.  Personalized bookplates will memorialize your gift, and you may choose the subject of the books you memorialize.

Wills & Bequests

Including the Library in your will allows you to carry your commitment to the Library beyond your lifetime. Your attorney, accountant or trust officer will work with you to design a bequest that fits your situation and meets your goals. A professional will also make sure you receive the tax benefits allowed for your gift. If you already have a will, it may be amended by a codicil to include the Library.

The following is sample bequest phrasing:

“I give out bequeath (Dollar Amount, Property to be Given, Percentage or Remainder) to Lowville Free Library, an organization registered with the IRS under IRS code 501(c)3.”
