Gift Planning

Ensure that your support will live on as an ongoing gift to future generations by including the Pleasant Valley Library in your estate plans. Making a planned gift provides needed resources for future Library users. Your gift can extend the joy you have experienced at the Library to others, while giving you substantial financial benefits and tax savings.

A legacy gift represents your values and creates a lasting impact. You may choose to designate support for general purposes of the Library, or your favorite section or function of the Library, such as children’s programming, exhibitions, library staff development, etc. Either way, you will feel deeply rewarded by the knowledge that your investment will have a beneficial impact on our community for years to come.

There are a variety of ways to make a charitable, planned gift. One of the simplest is to give through your will or living trust. You can also make the Library a beneficiary of your retirement plan. Please email the director at for more information.

Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers are welcome! If you are interested in volunteering you can click here to print out the volunteer application and drop it by the library, or just come in and fill out the application on the spot. When a need arises which matches your expressed interests and scheduled availability, the library will contact you.

Friends of the Library

The Friends of the Pleasant Valley Free Library is a volunteer group dedicated to promoting the use of the Library’s resources, programs, and services. Aware that our Library enhances our community, we work closely with our Library Director and staff, as well as our Board of Trustees, to support and advance our Library. One way we do this is by purchasing needed materials and equipment. These purchases allow our Library to function on a minimum of tax dollars.

Our income derives from Friend fundraisers such as Book Sales and Mah Jongg Tournaments as well as projects such as yard and plant sales. We’re happy to encourage gifts and contributions. The Friends donate their time sorting books for our book sales, running those sales, and teaching some classes. Importantly, they also help to promote our Library through their support and enthusiasm for our Library’s mission*.

We encourage you to join us.  Our group is always open to new people and new ideas. Becoming a Friend will introduce you to a wonderful and friendly group of people– as well as lots of new book and movie titles. This is your opportunity to meet and connect with others while supporting your Library.

*The Mission of the Pleasant Valley Free Library is to provide effective, friendly and responsive service capable of evolving and expanding with the needs of our community.
