Annual Fund

Donating just got easier!

Only about 6% of the revenue necessary to support the library comes from taxes, due to a cut by the City of Jamestown. The rest comes from private donations, library fees and grants. Each year the library solicits donations by letter from its borrowers and friends. This money is used to buy new books and other library materials.

Now you can donate any dollar amount instantly and securely using a credit card or a PayPal account. You do not need to create a PayPal account to donate; simply enter your credit card details and your account will be securely charged.

If you click the donor PayPal link below, you will be taken to the PayPal site, where, once your transaction is completed, you will receive a detailed transaction receipt for your tax-deductable donation.

If you would like to mail a donation to the Library, please send it to:

James Prendergast Library

Jamestown, NY 14701
