Special Gifts Program
You can make a donations for books or other library materials to honor a friend or loved one, while at the same time allowing the library to purchase items it might not otherwise be able to afford. Donors may suggest titles or topics to reflect the interests of the honoree, or simply allow the library to choose what is best for the collection. Bookplates provided by the library will be inserted indicating the name of the honoree and the name of the donor.
