Support Your Library
The Traverse Area District Library (TADL) is a public library system providing quality library services online and in six locations throughout Grand Traverse County. Public funding provides for day-to-day operation, and community support allows us to flourish and grow! 

Monetary Donations

Monetary donations are always welcome and appreciated! Funds may be given directly to the Traverse Area District Library. Your donation will enrich, not replace, traditional tax-based funding and allow us to expand programming and services. 

Honor the memory of a loved one, pay tribute to family or friends, or celebrate a special occasion by donating to TADL. Gifts of $500 or more will be placed on the donor wall in the lobby of the Main (Woodmere) Branch Library for permanent public recognition. Gifts of $10,000 or more will be acknowledged specifically on the donor wall and, if appropriate, in the location where monies have been utilized.


Book Donations

Thousands of books are given to TADL each year and many are added to our shelves. The rest are sold at annual Friends of TADL used book sales or in the Gift Shop. Whether added to our collection or sold to the public, your book donation benefits the library and the community.
Donated items accepted:
  • books, hardback and paperback
  • CDs
  • DVDs
Please do not donate books or other material in poor condition. The library cannot use them and must make arrangements for disposal. 

Thank you for your support of the Traverse Area District Library.
