Donations of materials to the library are willingly accepted, without commitment, and are subjected to high standards of quality. Materials should be current, in excellent condition and have good moral content.


Our library is growing, and you can help! Leaf-a-Legacy is a special plan for purchasing books and other materials to donate to RiverTree Library in honor of someone special, in celebration of a special occasion, in memory of a loved one, or just to make a great resource available to others.

How It Works:

Visit the Leaf-a-Legacy tree in the RiverTree Library. Each leaf on the tree has the title, author and cost of a book that is on our library wish list. Pluck a leaf from the tree for the book title you would like to donate and take it to a library check-out desk. You may also review our printed wish list to choose an item to donate to the library.

Three Ways To Donate:

  1. Make a donation to the library for the amount listed for the book you would like to donate.
  2. Purchase the book from the RiverTree Bookstore and bring it to a library check-out desk.
  3. Purchase the book or item elsewhere and bring it to a library check-out desk.

When the book you have donated has been processed, you will receive a phone call and be given the opportunity to be the first person to check out the book from the library.
