Support the Library


“A library outranks any other one thing a community can do to benefit its people. It is a never failing spring in the desert.” ~Andrew Carnegie

The Acton Public Library belongs to all of us. Many organizations and citizens like you contribute to the health of the Library by donating their time, money and materials. Your support helps the library serve the community above and beyond what tax-based funding provides. Thanks to donations from individuals and businesses and foundations, the library can provide more and better:

  • Books, movies and games

  • Library of Things, such as fishing poles, snow shoes, power washer and more.

  • Technology resources, including free public access to computers and the Internet

  • Programming for children, teens, and adults

  • Community events

Support your Library and help it grow!
