Support Your Library

Volunteer-Volunteers are a very important part of our library.  We have many opportunities for people to help on a daily basis, for special projects, or for one of our special events such as our book sales, or cultural events.  Our Volunteer Coordinator Shirley Ammons will be glad to find the perfect volunteer opportunity for you.  Simply call Shirley at 850-653-9096. Or stop by and leave us your name and number and we will get right back to you.

Donate Books

Apalachicola Margaret Key Library recognizes the value of donated books, Audios and DVDs: some for our permanent collections, some to defray the cost of purchasing books, and some for resale to generate funds for new books and programs. Remember books and other materials should be in good shape with relatively recent publication dates.  Older Books and rare editions will be accepted for resale through our network of rare book retailers and collectors. We accept donations of books of all types and your donations are tax deductible.
