Monetary Gifts & Memorials
The Library welcomes cash contributions as gifts or in honor or memory of a loved one. These gifts are usually used to purchase materials for the library collection. Other times, donors ask that it be used for equipment or a specified project. Donors who contribute gifts and memorials for the purchase of materials may make suggestions on format and subject matter or leave it to the discretion of library staff.
Library materials purchased with gift funds, have a donor plate (see example below) placed in each item listing the donor’s name and, when applicable, the name of the person being memorialized or honored. A thank you letter is sent to the donor and an acknowledgment is sent to anyone specified by the donor. Memorials are perfect expressions of sympathy for the passing of a loved one. Honors are suitable for birthdays, graduations, anniversaries, retirements, or other special events.
Donors can easily make online contributions via our website. Donations can be made in $5.00 increments.
