Make a Gift

When you support the Everett Public Library, you are providing crucial support for a wide range of Library programs and services that receive little or no public funding.  Public funding pays only a portion of the Library's operating expenses. We depend on support from individuals like you to support summer reading, adult programming, technology access, and so much more. Your gift helps keep these vital services FREE for all of Everett.

For assistance and questions about donations, please contact the Library Director at (425) 257-8022.
