Give Your Library a Book in Honor of a Special Person

What a great holiday gift-giving idea! Mail or bring this form to the Library. You may suggest your donation be used to purchase material in an area of special interest, such as Children's books, large print or a specific subject, ie., hobbies, sports, etc. And your donation is tax deductible!

When a donation is made, an acknowledgement card is sent to the honoree. The material is held at the Main Desk for 1 week so the honoree may see it first. What a wonderful way to remember your relatives and friends.
