Tribute gifts help our Library provide thousands more books, dozens more programs and more life-changing support to anyone in our community who needs it.
Tribute gifts are recognized with a customized bookplate in a new Library book, inscribed with the name of the person honored. Donations can be made by an individual, a group, or a company.
Two tribute gift options:
- One-Time Tribute: For every $50 donated, our librarians place a bookplate inside the front cover of a hardcover book inscribed with the donor’s name and the person or event honored/remembered.
- Ongoing Tributes: Gifts of $500 or more will be added to our endowment and help purchase Library books for years to come. For every $500 donated, a bookplate inscribed with a special message of your choice will be placed annually in a Library book in recognition of your exceptional gift.
For both Tribute options, we will send a letter and a sample bookplate to the honoree acknowledging your contribution. Donors will also receive an official acknowledgment for tax purposes.
