Property taxes pay a portion of the Winnebago Public Library District’s expenses.
Grant funding, when available, also helps. But, in order to provide you with the
materials, programs, service and access you deserve, we depend on additional
support from generous individuals and organizations.
All contributions made to the Winnebago Public Library District are tax deductible to
the full extent of the law.
Get Involved—Your Way!
What to help? Here’s how….
We are always looking for volunteers! You might help with grounds maintenance,
shelving and organizing materials, office tasks, or programming. We welcome
individuals who want to help on a regular basis or with a one-time project and groups
that want to work on a project.
We count on the contributions of area businesses and services and are grateful for
such strong support! Our sponsors provide funds, materials, food, and advertising for
so many of our programs and services.
Whether it’s the change from your car console or a $500 contribution, we welcome
and appreciate financial contributions! You may designate your contribution for a
specific program, service, or collecting area or allow the library to use your
contribution wherever there are needs.
Send a check payable to the Winnebago Public Library

Your gently used books, audio books and DVD’s may be recycled in the library’s
collection or put out for sale to raise funds for collections and programs. We also
appreciate gifts of program supplies and prizes, office supplies, and cleaning supplies.
Library lovers who want to make a difference into the future may want to consider a
bequest to the Winnebago Public Library in their estate planning. The automatic
sliding doors at the library entrance, for example, were made possible through a
bequest that enabled the library to provide required matching grant funds.

The Ruby Hodges memorial garden located at the front of the Winnebago Public Library received
an update by Joie Vittetow. The 18 year old Winnebago High School graduate, as part of her Senior
Community Service Project, restored the memorial Garden sign in 2017 originally constructed by
Steve Miller May 1991.
