Fundraising

One of the core objectives of the Friends is charity.  Our goal is to raise funds for the West Lafayette Public Library to acquire new materials, host engaging programming, and provide other opportunities at our wonderful community asset on Columbia St.

Each month, the target donation amount is $2500.  On an average month, this means we help the library purchase:

Area Approx. Amount Approx. # of Items[1][2]
Children’s Books $300  25
Teen Books $150  10
Adult Books $1000 50
Periodicals $100  20 (issues)
Media (DVDs, books-on-cd, etc.) $400  35
Electronic $550  36

We have four main channels to raise funds for the West Lafayette Public Library:

  1. Book Fairs and Sales
  2. Book Shop
  3. Amazon
  4. Vintage Vinyl Sale
