Donations and Suggestions

Other Donations

Do you sometimes feel at a loss in your search for a way to remember someone on a special occasion?  Whether it is to remember the passing of a friend, to celebrate a birthday or congratulate someone on their retirement, a gift to your library can be a touching tribute.  You can honor the person you wish to remember and provide enjoyment to many others.

There are many things your gift can do.  It can purchase a book, a new service, museum passes, or provide equipment or technology. 

Please contact the director for help in selecting an appropriate gift item that fits your budget and is a worthwhile addition to the library's collection.  Please see our Donations Policy for more information, on our Policies page.
