Donations supporting the administration, activities and programs of The Friends may be made to the following funds:

General Fund
Donations to this fund help pay Friends operating expenses, covering: the newsletter, postage, organizational dues, committee activities, office supplies, fund-raising, insurance, sponsorships, publicity, and funding for library programs, equipment and materials.

First Friends Fund
First Friends donations support library programs that promote children’s literacy, and to provide books, materials, and equipment for the Children's Department. A popular program is Waggin’ Tails that gives a child the opportunity to read to a service dog. The child gains reading skills without interruptions or corrections from the listener.

The Anna V. Duffield Fund
In memory of Loveland’s first librarian, this fund is reserved for significant library improvements, program enhancements, equipment additions, and professional development of staff. This fund provides tuition reimbursement for staff continuing education.

Priscilla’s Bookshelf
In honor of long-time Loveland book discussion group leader Priscilla Beal, Priscilla's Bookshelf provides multiple copies of the same book for check-out by local book discussion groups.

Program & Activity Sponsorships
Help us defray expenses and make more money available to the library by helping sponsor a program or activity. Sponsorships are needed annually for Loveland Loves to Read, Loveland Lights, and the Summer Reading Program.

Donations to any of these funds can be made in memory of or in honor of the person(s) you designate. At checkout, please give the name of the individual and the name and address of the person to whom we should send a notice of your gift.
