The Aiken Friends of the Library Sponsor Amazon Wish List
The Friends of the Aiken County Public Library invite patrons to make a wish come true by purchasing a new book, CD, or DVD for the Aiken County Public Library through the Amazon.com’s Wish List program. Patrons can use the Wish List link from either the library or the Friends’ website to see the items on the library’s wish list. The Amazon Wish List consists of high-quality books and audio-visual materials selected by library staff. Due to the budget cuts in State funding, the library is not otherwise able to afford these titles.

When a patron buys the items on the library’s Amazon.com Wish List, they are mailed to the library’s processing center. As an added perk, patrons who purchase wish list items for the Aiken County Public Library may choose to be the first to check them out by entering a note in the "gift option" section.

All donations are tax deductible as the law allows. Donors are advised to keep their receipts from Amazon.com in order to take advantage of tax deductions.
