BIDL Wish List

Support Beaver Island District Library, Your Bridge to the World of Ideas

We at the library are always open to suggestions and ideas from our valued patrons.  Please tell us what you think, or give a gift to support a project you believe in. Here are some of the things we're hoping to work on in the future:

Collection Development

- Help us enhance our collection with additional funds for purchases in any of the following areas:

  • Adult fiction/nonfiction
  • YA fiction/nonfiction
  • Children's fiction/nonfiction
  • Multimedia (audio books, adult and children's DVDs, music)
  • E-books or downloadable audio books (Overdrive)
You may be as specific as you wishabout what you'd like us to use your donation for, though the final decision will comply with our Collection Development Policy


Other needs:
  • New shelving and/or storage for our growing DVD collection
  • A general Furniture Upgrade (easy chairs, ottomans, couches, study carrels, etc.)
  • Contributions to our Programming budget (to bring in authors, presentations, workshops and other special programming for the enrichment of the community)
  • We are also looking at starting one or more after-school book clubs, and would like to see if any of our patrons would be interested in sponsoring a book or two (it would essentially involve helping us purchase enough copies of the book for everyone in the club to read it together)
  • A gas fireplace for one of the cozy corners of the Langford Music Porch would make it the an even more perfect place to settle in with a cup of hot coco and a good book
  • A peaceful decorative pond with a waterfall to enhance the gardens

*If you are interested in supporting any of these projects (or the library as a whole) with a financial gift, click on the "Donate" button to the right to make a secure donation through Paypal. Thank you!
