Support Us

It is through the generosity of our patrons and community members that the Ames Free Library is able to consistently provide you with the quality programming that you’ve come to expect and rely on.

If you’ve ever enjoyed connecting with your community through discussion with a local author; listening to a concert or strolling quietly in our beautiful Queset Garden; participating in a lively children’s storytime; learning new skills in a class or training session; creating projects with new technologies at Queset House; and of course, checking out or downloading your favorite books, movies, and music; then please consider giving a lasting gift to your friends, neighbors, and the whole community of Easton.

A donation in any amount is always appreciated! There are four different ways to donate:
