Honor and Memorial Gifts


What is a Honor and Memorial Gift?

A gift made in someone’s name is a meaningful way to mark a special occasion or to remember or honor a beloved family member, respected friend, or colleague.

We’ll send your honoree or their family a card acknowledging your generosity.   Your gift will be used to purchase new books for our collections.  When you make a gift of at least $15.00, we will place the name of your honoree on a bookplate in a new book.
