Support the Library

Helen Crocker Russell Library of Horticulture

The Helen Crocker Russell Library of Horticulture is made possible by the generous contributions from our community. Donors can also purchase books from our Amazon Wish List, which will be sent directly to the Library. You can request a letter from the Garden confirming this gift as a charitable donation.

Here are five other great ways to support our mission:

  1. Contribute funds to purchase needed books, or adopt periodicals by funding subscriptions and binding. Special memorial or honorary bookplates are added to these books and periodicals.
  2. Establish a library endowment to provide funds each year for acquisitions.
  3. Contribute to the Library Fund to help support reference services, library equipment, supplies, and our professional staff.
  4. Volunteer at the Library
  5. Join San Francisco Botanical Garden Society to provide ongoing support.
