Give a Financial Gift
Did you know that the library’s annual budget is only partially covered by county dollars? Each year the library still needs help with these areas:
- Funding special programs or projects, including technology enhancements
- Expanding the number of books available for check-out
- Producing educational programs for children, adults, and staff
The main giving method toward the library is the Gift Memorial Fund. This fund provides unrestricted support for library programs, events, and a variety of general needs. Donations to the Gift Memorial Fund have an immediate impact on library services.
Remember & Celebrate
Tribute gifts are a terrific way of acknowledging a special event or recognizing someone special. These gifts help support library services. Donations are recognized in the donation book, which is on display at the circulation desk. An acknowledgement letter will be sent to the recipient or their family to inform them of your contribution.
Book Plate Tribute
One unique giving opportunity is the Book Plate Tribute. For every $25 donated, the library will place an inscribed bookplate into a new book. The bookplate can list the person being honored, and the honoree and donor will receive an acknowledgement of the book it appears in. Donations for book plates will be directed toward the Gift Memorial General Fund.
Any gift is greatly appreciated, and no amount is too small. Notifications of gifts are mailed to individuals or their families, and an entry is made in the Gift Memorial donation ledger for donations to the Gift Memorial Fund.
