General purpose donations will be deposited in a special gift fund. This fund will not be used for general operating expenditures, but only for special purchases or projects. The interest earned from the gift fund will be added to the fund annually.
Book Marks Remembrance Fund: Managed by the Friends, the Book Marks Remembrance Fund provides an opportunity to celebrate (a person’s life and achievements), honor (people who have made contributions to you, your organization, the community) and remember people who’ve made a difference in your life. Donations made in honor of special people and loved ones are used to purchase books and other materials that the library might not otherwise be able to buy. A special bookplate is placed in these items. Please make your check out to: The Friends of LEPMPL and note that it is for Book Marks Remembrance.
Donations of money for collection materials will be deposited in the library’s Book Marks Remembrance Fund. Purchases from this fund will be authorized by the Collection Development Committee. Donations of over $200 may be designated for specific subject areas of the collection. Those under $200 will be placed in the fund and combined with other donations for purchase of materials. A bookplate acknowledging the fund will be placed in materials purchased from the Book Marks Remembrance Fund.
