  • Ask for a receipt if needed for tax purposes.
  • Magazines, textbooks, computer software and titles that are more than 5 years should be donated to other non-profit organizations.
  • Materials in poor condition should be recycled.


Founded in 1990 to ensure the future of the library, The Foundation for Bayport Public Library is chartered with raising funds to support library programs and services. If you want to help fundraise, you can research some fundraising ideas to help you when raising that money!

As the foundation looked ahead to future generations of library users, it chose to establish an endowment that is specifically set aside to enhance the library’s collection and its programs.

The strength of the collection, the wealth of special events for children and adults, and the library’s beautiful setting are possible thanks to donors who support the foundation’s Mission:

“The Foundation for Bayport Public Library is a private, non-profit corporation solely committed to supporting the Library’s Mission by raising funds to enhance Library resources and services.”

Governed by a volunteer Board of Directors, the foundation meets regularly throughout the year and has various committees to help accomplish its goals.
