Support the Chilton Public Library

Thank you for your interest in supporting lifelong literacy and learning. There are many ways to support the Chilton Public Library. We can put your donation to work right away!

Supporting the Chilton Public Library gives you the opportunity to make a local and lasting impact on our community. When you support the Library with your time or with a financial donation, you are making a statement about the importance of the Library in your life and the lives of others.

Financial Donation

Your tax-deductible contribution helps advance library services, builds collections, and improves technology and facilities.

Currently the library can receive donations either by cash or check.  Donations can be dropped off in-person or mailed to the library:

Chilton Public Library

Chilton, WI 53014

Donations of Books or Materials

Give your gently used books, CDs, and videos new life by donating them to the Chilton Public Library and the Friends of the Library for circulation use or for annual book sales. Proceeds fund special projects, programs, and facilities improvements. Contributions are tax-deductible.

Please be aware that acceptance of donations are subject to library policy and the director's discretion.


Donations to the library generally qualify for tax deductions. IRS Publication 526 states that “Money or property given to federal, state, and local governments, if your contribution is solely for public purposes” is deductible (page 2).


Donations to the library are deductible because the library is a department of a local department and donations would be for public purposes. Further, this IRS page,-State-&-Local-Governments/GovernmentalInformation-Letter (accessed, 2/2/15) states: Charitable contributions to governmental units are taxdeductible under section 170(c)(1) of the Internal Revenue Code if made for a public purpose.

Join the Friends of the Chilton Public Library

The Friends group provides volunteer help and supplemental funds for special projects and collections that the Library could not otherwise afford. For more information click here.
