Corporate or Organizational Sponsorship

Help sponsor a puppet show, or a visit from the Kansas City Zoo!
The Maryville Public Library strives to bring quality programming to our community in the form of events that inform, entertain and enrich the citizens of Maryville. Program sponsorship is a creative way to bring attention to your business or organization while helping to support the community. It can also be a unique way to honor a loved one or a friend. Just a few of our past sponsors include Nodaway Valley Bank, Pagliai’s Pizza, The Hangar Theater and Restaurant, Maryville Pride Lions Club, Eagles Ladies Auxiliary, and the Maryville Optimist Club. Learn more about sponsorships.

Memorial Donations

The library accepts monetary donations in memory of loved ones to be used for books, furnishings or other library needs. This is also a great way to honor someone on their birthday or for any special occasion. Bookplates with the donor’s name and the honoree’s name are placed inside the cover of each book. Contact Stephanie Patterson at (660) 582-5281 to learn more.

The Maryville Public Library would love to help organize a new Friends of the Library group! Please contact Stephanie Patterson at (660) 582-5281 or email if you are interested.
