There are many ways to support the library.  You may donate materials or money, join one of our active Friends groups, or donate your time and talents as one of our volunteers. However you choose to give, please realize that your contributions enable us to thrive, and to continue our achievements and successes.  We couldn’t do, what we do, without YOU!

Material Donations

Our professional staff carefully select and maintain our collections through the use of guidelines and criteria established and approved by our Board.  While we do accept book, audiobook, and DVD donations, the following criteria apply:

  • At a minimum, donated materials must be in very good condition.  Excellent or like new is preferred.
  • We do not accept encyclopedias or newspapers.
  • DVDs and CD audio books are in high demand.  We will no longer accept VHS, cassettes, or any other analog media.
  • Our focus is on popular materials.  Academic journals and text are not needed.
  • Any items not placed into our collections will be sold to the public either in the library or via our online bookseller, Better World Books
Monetary Donations

Your donation is most important in helping the Troup-Harris Regional Library satisfy our mission of providing lifelong learning, literacy support, and entertaining programming to our communities.  Only a portion of our funding comes from governmental agencies.  The library relies on corporate sponsorships, our Friends of the Library groups, and of course individual donors such as yourself.

THRL is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, and all gifts are tax deductible to the extent allowable by law.  We will ensure that all gifts will be used to support the library’s mission and vision.  For more information about supporting the library please email, or call us at 706-882-7784.  Thank you for your generous support, and for helping us to sustain services on behalf of the Troup and Harris communities.
