Support the Library
Thank you for your interest!
The Liverpool Public Library's funding comes from:
- The direct support we receive from the taxpayers of the Liverpool School District.
- An annual grant from the taxpayers of New York State.
- Revenue from computer printing, copiers, interest, and the like.
- Overdue fines, and fees charged for lost books.
- Money dropped in our donation box.
- Gifts, bequests and donations.
Other ways you might support the library:
Donate Directly to the Library
Drop some coins or bills into our donation box the next time you visit. It is located near the checkout area.
If you would like to make a larger donation, you can drop it off at the library or mail it to:

Donate to our Foundation
You can now donate online to the Liverpool Public Library Fund at the Central NY Community Foundation, Inc.
This Agency Fund was created by the Board of Trustees as a convenience to donors and to support both capital and general library purposes.
This page also handles matching gifts through your employer. It also provides information on making memorial gifts and donating stock.
Be a volunteer! Opportunities are varied and some are seasonal, but every volunteer hour is very much appreciated.
