Why donate to Suffolk Libraries

Your donations help us to support people across Suffolk by reducing isolation, improving wellbeing, and delivering vital services to our communities, both in the library and online. Please donate and help support our important work.

Why donate to Suffolk Libraries?

Many of our additional services are made possible by your generous donations, and we're able to provide activities, spaces and services for free.

With the support of our communities, we've done some amazing things over the past decade, but we need your help to keep our services going. Please donate and support Suffolk Libraries - it matters now more than ever. Just £5 a month will go a long way.

You can help make Suffolk healthier

We're one of the only libraries in the country with a dedicated health and wellbeing service, providing drop-ins, reading lists and resources to help with your wellbeing.

Research shows that every £1 spent on Suffolk Libraries groups and activities returns more than £8 of “social value", saving the local NHS more than £250,000 every year through combating social isolation and improving wellbeing.

You can help provide welcoming spaces across Suffolk

We hold 14,000 events, activities and experiences that are attended over 200,000 times every year.

Our library spaces are for everyone - for parents and young children to engage in fun activities, for teens to have a quiet space to work on homework, for older people to socialise with others. Whatever you use the library for, our doors are always open.

You can help reach the isolated

By donating £20 per month, you could support the running costs of Phone a Friend our telephone befriending scheme for anyone who is lonely or isolated in the Suffolk community.

Your donation could also support our Home Library Service, which helps to deliver books and other materials to those who are unable to visit their local library.
