Help Your Children’s Library


Above is a copy of our current wishlist, this list contains what are needs are for both physical items and personal time donations. We welcome all donations and appreciate all who donate be it with an item or with their own time.

Donating any of the above helps us provide programming, books, and more to the children of Maury County. The children’s library seeks to provide a sense of joy and love of learning to all children who visit our library. Your donation will help us achieve this goal and continue to perpetuate the importance of reading and education throughout our county.
