Wish List

Building a library's collection is a job that is never finished. New books are published every day and a library’s book budget only goes so far.  The Library Wish List Program is an opportunity to support the library by adding specific, high-need items to the collection by donating an item found on the Wish List.  The Wish Lists will be updated regularly, so please check back often!

If you would like to make a donation to the Indiana Free Library, simply purchase one of the approved listed books from your favorite book retailer. If you choose to use Amazon, consider using Amazon Smile, as a small portion of your purchase will be donated to the library.  You may need to select Indiana Free Library as your non-profit on Amazon Smile. 

The library would be glad to receive new or like-new hardback copies of any of these exciting new titles -- paperbacks just do not hold up well long term in a library situation. 

Once you have the book, print and complete the Wish List donation sheet, place it in the book, and drop it off in the library’s dropbox.
