Common Questions

Question
Answer
How do I join Friends of Smyrna Library? Please review our membership page.
Can I donate used books to the library?

Yes. We welcome donations of used hardcover and paperback books in good condition. The library has a collection of almost 100,000 books and it is always adding and replacing books. Donated books meeting a specific need will be added to the library's collection.

Other books will be sold at one of our book sales. Last year we raised thousands of dollars from the sale of donated used books. Thank you for your donation!

Why do you collect used computer printer ink jet cartridges? We collect and sell used ink jet cartridges to a recycling company. We raise almost $500 a year from this innovative program. Please place your used cartridges in the bin beneath the FOSL display case in the library lobby.
Why do you solicit donations of old magazines to the library? Used magazines are sold for 10 cents each at the bookstore near the circulation desk. Because of the nominal price, this fund raising program has become very popular. So, please bring in as many magazines as you can carry!
What else can I donate that will benefit the library?

FOSL welcomes the non-cash donation of products and services needed to support library programs and defray costs. Please see our current list of desired items if you wish to make a non-cash donation.

Can I donate supplies specifically for the children's program? Yes. Please review the wish list.
Do you offer any community service volunteer opportunities? Yes. Please see our list of volunteer job openings and apply today!
If I donate money to the Friends of Smyrna Library (FOSL), what will it be used for?

Unspecified donations are placed in an endowment from which funds are spent to support the library.

If you want to direct the expenditure of a specific cash donation, please contact our officers to discuss implementing your gift. Thank you for your consideration and generosity.

Can I specify a donation from my estate in my will for the benefit of the Smyrna Library? Yes. FOSL is able to both accept your donation and assist your lawyer in planning your bequest. Please contact our president to learn more.
