Purchase your items through eScrip's Online Mall 

What is eScrip? eScrip has created a system that rewards customer loyalty by contributing a percentage of purchases made by participating families to school or youth based groups. Parents, teachers, friends and families are encouraged to register their grocery club cards, and existing credit/debit cards as supporters. A percentage of all purchases made at eScrip merchants will be given back to Friends of the Modesto Library. 

Participating merchants contribute each time your families make a purchase using their registered cards. There are no receipts to collect, no vouchers or certificates to buy, no hassles for you and every purchase counts. 

The Little Shop

The Friends of the Modesto Library operates the Little Shop, a used book and gift store inside the Modesto Library. We're 100% volunteer-run! Watch for future changes. We hope to expand hours as more volunteers sign on. Please consider volunteering as a sales associate; your help is invaluable. Potential volunteer gift shop sales associates please contact us:

Use your credit card to donate to the Friends via Paypal. We'll channel your money into areas of need and support for the library.
