Book Memorials & Gifts

Want to give a memorial that will last longer than flowers? How about donating a book to the library? You choose the topic and we will find the perfect book. Each book donated has a plaque placed inside stating it was given in memory of your loved one.

For the person who has everything, you can also give books in honor of someone’s birthday, anniversary, or other special occasion.  We’ll send a note letting them know of your gift, and reserve it so they may be the first person to check it out. Inside the front cover we will place a plaque that says the book was donated in honor of that special person.

Stop by the Help Desk for more information or to pick up the donation form. Or print out the form here and drop it off at the library’s Help Desk any time.
