Are you looking for ways to support Patagonia Public Library and the Friends of Patagonia Library this year but not sure where to start? Here’s a handy list of ideas to inspire:

1. We have tote bags for sale, just in time for the holidays! For $20 you can gift a sturdy and stylish bag to someone you love that benefits the Friends of the Library. Give us a call or send an email to pick one up curbside or make an appointment to come into the library. 

2. The Friends are accepting donations in honor of Henry Krzys for the library to purchase books about multi-ability children that will help expand the diversity of our children’s collections. Titles for this collection include: “47 Strings: Tessa’s Special Code” by Becky Carey, “We’re All Wonders” by R.J. Palacio, “Understanding Sam and Asperger Syndrome” by Clarabelle van Niekirk, and “Rescue & Jessica: A Life-Changing Friendship” by Jessica Kensky.

3. If you’re in need of books to purchase for the holidays, the library has you covered. Make an appointment to browse the book sale.

4. Though our hours are limited, we are still providing curbside and appointment services at this time. Use our online catalog to browse thousands of books, DVDs, audio books, music CDs, and magazines available for check out. Unsure about handling physical items from the library? We now offer free ebooks and movie streaming through our website. Go to for more information or call us for assistance.

The Library is grateful for the support of our wonderful patrons, donors, and partners. Whether you make a monetary donation or check out a book, you are actively helping us to continue our mission of being a common ground for the community, a site for life-long learning, a source for current topics and titles, and a guardian of local history. COVID-19 has made coming into the library trickier, but we strive to do everything we can to ensure that you are still able to access the library from the comfort of your own home. Thank you!
