Ways of Giving

Vose offers many opportunities for giving

Planned Giving:

We encourage you to think of Vose Library in your will, and are happy to talk to you about ways to do so.

Vose Library is a nonprofit corporation. Financial support for the library comes from interest from endowment funds, an annual appropriation from the town of Union, grants, gifts from individuals, and income from fundraising projects of the volunteer Ways and Means Committee. Contributions and memorial gifts are welcome and greatly appreciated. All gifts to the library are tax deductible.

Amazon Smile:

Amazon Smile is no longer supported by Amazon. Please use one of the other ways of giving.


Swing by and grab a CLYNK bag near our outside Book Drop. Then fill it with your returnables. Each time you submit a filled CLYNK bag (with our special sticker on it) to a local receptacle, Vose Library benefits with cash back. 


Search and shop online and support the library! It’s free and simple–just shop for everyday items at over 700 stores in the iGive network, including Amazon, Staples, Best Buy and L. L. Bean, and a portion of each purchase automatically benefits Vose Library. iGive also donates a penny for every web search. Get started at

Monetary Gifts:

To enrich our basic budget and help our library better serve the citizens of Union and the surrounding area, make a cash donation by mail or online.

By mail:

Vose Library, PO Box 550, Union ME 04862

By online donation with a credit card through PayPal:

All donations are tax deductible and donors receive an acknowledgment which can be used for tax purposes. If you wish, your gift can be designated for a particular purpose, such as children’s books or programs.


We accept item donations

Donate Items:

Would you like to pass on your gently used books or movies? (The library can only accept high-quality, relatively recent materials, due to space constraints. If you have questions, feel free to contact us.) Donated items may be added to the collection, added to the Mini Book Sale, or (if of special interest or value) sold with the proceeds used to benefit the Library.


We have Amazon Wish Lists, one for children, and one for movies.

Give of yourself and your time:

 We have lots of volunteer opportunities

  • Work at the front desk. A great opportunity for those who enjoy the public and are comfortable with computers
  • Help out behind the scenes, shelving books, processing new materials, or putting together newsletters and other mailings
  • Put together a program. Plan an activity for children’s Storytime, or organize a program on a topic that interests you
  • Offer to serve on the Library Board of Trustees or on one of their Committees. You will join a hard-working and fun group of people who really care about Vose Library and the Town of Union

Join the Ways and Means committee:

These friends of the library undertake several major fund-raising events each year, including the Plant and Bake Sale, the 5K Road Race, and the ever-popular Stash Sale. Proceeds from these events benefit the yearly operating budget, and may also be used for special purchases to enhance library operations. Vose Library is indebted to our friends for many years of support and encouragement.
