Whitewright Public Library

Supporting Your Library

How to get involved!

Wish List

The library maintains several Amazon Wish Lists: Adult booksJuvenile and Young Adult booksGraphic Novels (all ages)Library of Things, & DVDs.

These are items the library would like to add to our collection, including pre-order titles. You are not required to buy from Amazon, but you can still use the lists to make a selection to purchase elsewhere.

You can also donate other items, or donate for the library to purchase materials it chooses. Please see our Donation Policies.


The Whitewright Public library welcomes and encourages members of the community to volunteer their time and talents to enrich and expand library services. Volunteers are expected to conform to all policies of the library, and are selected and retained for as long as the library needs their services.

Volunteers may be used for special events, projects, and activities or on a regular basis to assist staff. Services provided by volunteers will supplement, but not replace, regular services, and volunteers will not be used in place of hiring full- or part-time staff. Volunteers may apply for paid positions under the same conditions as other outside applicants. Paid staff may volunteer in other departments of city government outside of the library.

Types of Volunteer Work

Shelving and/or organizing materials, dusting shelves, vacuuming are year-round needs. We recommend that volunteers work in 1 - 2 hour time periods.

Our Annual Book Sale requires three days of setup (setting up tables, bringing books out of storage and sorting) before the sale. 

Annual Sale

Our annual fundraiser offers a mix of library discards and donated materials in a two-day sale. On Friday, all items are $1. On Saturday, we have a bag sale -- fill a provided bag for $5. We will post on our web site and Facebook when dates are set.

We have limited storage space for items, so please keep this in mind if you’d like to donate. Items should be in good condition (preferably with a copyright no older than 1980), and can include children’s books, hardcover or paperback fiction or non-fiction, DVDs, Blu-ray, and videogames.

We do not accept textbooks, encyclopedias, Reader’s Digest Condensed Books, VHS or cassette tapes, or pamphlets. The Library cannot use materials that are outdated or in poor condition, and reserves the right to refuse or dispose of them.
