We are thrilled to announce our first ever Sustaining Membership Drive! Sustaining members are donors who commit to donating a consistent amount of money on a monthly basis for Antelope's general funds. These types of donations allow for flexibility to launch new programming, a sustained expansion of staff hours, and patron-requested additions to our collections, making them truly the lifeblood of Antelope.
We are providing leveled incentives as a thank you for signing up for (or maintaining) a monthly donation.
NOTE: If you are an existing Sustaining Member and would like to increase your donation level, click "Log In" in the upper-right corner of the landing page, and log in to your donor profile. From inside your donor account, click "Recurring donations" to change the amount of your donation.

We are not alone in the work that we do in our community. Grants, contracts, community partners, and the support of people like YOU make it possible for our services to continue, year after year.
Since we began in 2012, we’ve expanded from visiting neighborhood parks in the summer to serving mobile home communities, after school programs and more! Our collection of books continues to grow to include current titles, including books in Spanish or bilingual Spanish/English. We’ve grown our service outside of the summer months by creating a more robust school-year service program, bringing books to students in their neighborhoods and after school programs. We love seeing the kids and families we serve come back year after year!
We are able to do what we do because of community-minded organizations and people like you. Thank you for keeping us rolling!
