We host drop boxes from a company called Discover Books.

One is for receiving donations and has been placed behind the dumpster.  

Residents can deposit their donations at any time of day or night.

This bin will be emptied on a regular basis by the Friends.


Donation to FOl

Ways to Support the Friends of the Library

Book Sales

The Book Sale room is open on Saturday morning from 9:30AM -11:30AM. Stop by during these hours to browse our wide selection of gently used books and media. The Book Sale room is located on the east side of the library building (alongside the parking lot). Donations are accepted during Book Sale hours each week.

Donations and Endowments

Donations: The Friends of the Library encourage gifts of books and media for the Book Sale, monetary donations, endowments, and bequests. Monetary donations may be made by cash or check at the weekly Book Sale or via PayPal. Contact the Friends at for more information.

Endowment Fund: In July 2000, the Friends of the Library set aside $5,000 to start an endowment fund for the Beaumont Library District. The endowment fund is a fund kept permanently and invested to create income for the Friends to benefit the Beaumont Library District.

Please remember the Friends of the Library when you wish to honor, gift, or memorialize a friend or loved one.
