In Honor Of
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. With this gift, we purchase books and materials that the library might not otherwise be able to buy. A special bookplate is placed in these items.
Donations up to $25 will be used to purchase special books, magazines, DVDs, or audio equipment that the library would otherwise be unable to purchase. Gifts and donors will be featured in the library newsletter and on the Honor Roll in the library. The Friends will send an acknowledgment to either the honoree or to the family notifying them of the gift. The amount is not divulged unless requested by the donor.
Donations of $25-$50 received all the benefits of the Bronze level and will be able to place a bookplate naming the donor and the person being honored in an existing item in the library’s collection. Please indicate the wording you would like on the bookplate on the donor form, as well as the title of the item from the library’s existing collection. A Friends rep will contact you for an alternative item if your first choice is not available.
Donations of $50 and up receive all the benefits of the Bronze and Silver levels with the addition of being able to designate a subject matter area of their choice. This is the perfect way to make sure that the materials purchased for the library will reflect the interests of the honoree. The subject area designated may remain broad, such as children’s books, or maybe a specific title, such as the Giving Tree.
