Nonprofit Toolkit Pathfinder

Kirkwood Public Library values local nonprofits and the communities they serve. Nonprofits continue to enjoy a 90% discount when reserving our meeting room. The links collected on this page point Nonprofits to helpful local agencies that provide advice, counseling, and resources.

We have also introduced the Nonprofit Library Card to provide additional benefits to local nonprofits. These include 50% off all types of printing in the library and access to checking out special equipment. Come in any time with proof of your nonprofit status and proof of authorization to receive your card!
