Donate

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

Individuals

Give a financial gift

Through our Development Office, the ICPL Friends Foundation fundraises through donations, mailings, special events, and The Book End. Private contributions expand and replace materials across Library collections and create experiences which can connect, engage, and enrich lives of all in our community. Other ways to give include donating gently used books for The Book End or by volunteering your time.

Questions? Contact the Development Office at (319) 356-5249 or patty-mccarthy@icpl.org
