Giving to PDL

You support the entire community when you provide financial support to the Plymouth District Library. There are a number of ways you can contribute to the financial well-being of the Library, helping it maintain its important place as a resource for all. Any of the following types of gifts can be made by downloading this Gift Form and working with any one of our librarians.

Gift/Memorial Program:

Monetary donations used to purchase materials in honor or memory of an individual or group are indicated with a notation in the Plymouth District Library online catalog. Each item purchased with donated funds is so designated via attachment of a bookplate to the item reflecting donor and recipient. These gifts are also noted in our Gift Page.

Endowment Fund
Founded in 1998, the Library’s Endowment Fund provides long-term stability to the Library. Your contribution is held in perpetuity, while interest on the account can be to defray costs for the Library.

The Library’s Endowment Fund is managed through the Community Foundation of Southeast Michigan, although 100% of your contribution will go directly to the Plymouth District Library. You may go online to their website and use the pulldown menu to select Plymouth District Library and make your donation immediately. Or, donations may be made by check to Community Foundation of Southeast Michigan. Please mark “Plymouth District Library” on the check subject line and send it to:

Community Foundation of Southeast Michigan

Detroit, MI 48226-3134


One of the most popular spots in the Plymouth District Library is the front parlor, named the Dunning Parlor after Library donor, Bessie Dunning and her daughter, Margaret Dunning. Over 100 magazines can be found in the parlor – current and back issues – and are a great community resource for information and entertainment. Individuals, businesses, and organizations may adopt a magazine by donating the annual subscription cost to the Library.
