Want to help?

A Clean, Well-Lighted Place will forever be a free resource for our members and community. While the best way to help out is to keep reading and using the space, there are a few tangible ways support the library below:

1. Book Donations: We accept book donations of all genres as long as they're in good, readable condition. Bring book donations by our space any time we're open or email us at to arrange a pick-up time.

2. Financial Pledges: We graciously accept monetary contributions of any amount electronically via Venmo or in person with our tip jar. Find us on Venmo at @tampalibrary. Donations will go towards expanding our selection, increasing our outreach, and--occasionally--supporting the drinking habits of our volunteers.

3. Sponsorship: If you represent or are a part of an organization that wants to sponsor and align with our mission, we'd love to chat. Tell us about who you are and what you do in a brief email to
