Donate Gently Used Books
By donating your gently used books to the library, you are helping literacy partners around the globe while benefiting the library. We partner with Better World Books, which collects the donated books and sells them online, donates them to literacy organizations, and recycles them if necessary. De Soto Public Library receive a portion of the proceeds from the online sales of books donated. That money goes back into your neighborhood libraries to make them better.
Gently used books can be dropped off at the library circulation desk.
Give Some of Your Time to DSPL
We love our volunteers! They are an integral part of our mission and their willingness to pitch in with our programs and services is so important to our work. Library volunteers come from all walks of life. We frequently host college groups, retired seniors, and others with a charitable spirit who are looking to give something back to their community. Volunteers help us as library aides, program assistants, tutors, and computer coaches, just to name a few options. Contact our volunteer coordinator (firstname.lastname@example.org) or our Volunteer page to learn about current opportunities.
