The Murphys Volunteer Library serves our community with literature,

audio books, DVDs, free wifi, meeting space, and dynamic programming.

Thank  You  for  Supporting Your  Library!

Community Cards work through eScrip - an online "shop-to-fundraise" program. Sign up for your FREE account at, and designate up to three different beneficiaries. Here are more ways to donate through eScrip, even without Community Cards:

  • The Online Mall. You do not need to be signed up for a Community Card to use the Online Mall - just log in to your account and look for the button in the upper right to “Shop Online.” This link will take you to the eScrip Online Mall (, where you can purchase from dozens of popular companies; each purchase will give some amount to your chosen organizations (like Murphys Volunteer Library).
  • The Benefit App. Install this app on your mobile device to purchase gift cards for many of the same retailers available at the Online Mall. You can also send gift cards as, you know, gifts. Again, each purchase generates a small donation for your selected beneficiary (i.e. Murphys Volunteer Library). This app will prompt you to link a checking or credit card account for payment.
  • eScrip Dining. From your eScrip account, click the link for “Where to Earn”; scroll down to find the link for Dining ( From here you can search for participating restaurants by name, or location (city/state/zip). To use eScrip Dining, you do need to register a credit or debit card (Visa, Mastercard, American Express, or Discover) to your account. Although there are only a couple restaurants listed as participating within 25 miles of Murphys, eScrip Dining is a great option for people who travel.

How to Help Your Library with eScrip
