Support Our Library

DAPL Children's Room Fundraiser

  • Cash or check donations can be made by dropping them off or mailing them to the Library, payable to DAPL with Children's Room in the memo line.

Endowment Fund

The DeForest Area Public Library Endowment Fund is a long-term investment in the future of our library and our community. The interest generated from the endowment fund will help fund programs, events, and/or purchase new (and ever-changing) technologies for the library and the community.

Donate Money

Monetary gift contributions can be made to the library. Gifts are tax deductible and the library would be happy to provide you with a receipt. Monetary gifts can be general in purpose or designated for a specific use. Gifts can be one-time, ongoing, and in the form of bequests or endowments.

Donate Books & Other Materials

A great way to support your library is to donate used books, CDs, DVDs, and other materials to the library. Your donation may be added to the library's collection or sold at the Friends of the DeForest Area Public Library book sale. All money from the Friends' book sale is used to enhance library programs and services.
