Support the Library

Give to the library, invest in ALL of us.

Menomonie Public Library makes our community better for everyone.

We know you love your library! Alongside you, we strengthen and connect our community.

But, did you know there is a gap between what our library needs to operate and provide programs and what a municipal budget can provide?

We depend on you to partner with us to bridge the gap. A stronger community is a win for all of us. 

ONE library. ONE community.

THREE ways to give.

Library Survey


The library has immediate needs and ideas for ways to enrich the community today that current public funding doesn’t cover.

Your gift FOR TODAY will be used immediately for the greatest current need at the library. Gifts may be given to celebrate, honor, or remember.



The Friends of Menomonie Public Library invest time and money so the library can continue to do good work in this place we all call home.

Your gift FOR TOMORROW will be directly gifted back to the library to sponsor events and support the library in a variety of ways.
