There are many ways you can make an impact on the Ely Public Library. Gifts to the Friends Foundation supplement funding from local, state, and federal governments.


Our Friends of the Ely Public Library raise funds through donations, BINGO events, Fall Fest craft fair, special events, and used book sales.  Other ways to give include donating gently used books and media, becoming a member of our Friends group, or by volunteering your time.


We value business partners for their commitment to give locally in support of the Ely Public Library.  Many support our special events and programs throughout the year.  We appreciate your support!
