Support GFPL

Monetary Donations:

Monetary donations can be given to the library any time of year. You may drop off or mail your donation to the Grand Forks Public Library (GFPL).

Book Donations:

Donations given to the Grand Forks Public Library will either be added to our collection or given to the Friends of the Library book sale.

When making donations, please consider the following guidelines:

  • No textbooks or magazines
  • Materials should be in good condition
  • Materials published within the last two years

Any local or North Dakota materials are accepted.

If you wish to donate an item that doesn’t meet these guidelines, please talk with a reference librarian.

Become a Volunteer:

Have some extra time on your hands? Have a green thumb or love for books that you just have to share? Then you’ve come to the right place!

Did you know? Since January 2010, our dedicated volunteers have been donating 65-70 hours of their spare time each month! Volunteer assistance with daily tasks and special projects is greatly appreciated by library staff. Donate a couple hours of your spare time and contribute to the Library in many valuable ways. These services can vary by the library’s needs and the volunteer’s personal interests and include, but are not limited to:

  • Helping with library events & activities, such as book sales
  • Attending to the foliage throughout the library
  • Dusting & tidying
  • Shelving recently returned materials

If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Information Services at 772-8116.
