Donate In Memoriam

Our Memorial Form enables you to donate funds that will be used to purchase an item for the collection. A memorial book plate will be placed inside the front cover of the item. While you may not be able to select exact titles for memorial items, you can give suggestions for general subjects or area of interest.

To make a donation in a loved one’s name, please fill out our Memorial form. The library also welcomes monetary donations!
