Memorial Books

Our Memorial Book program provides a way to remember loved ones in a special way.  A book or other material for the library’s collection may be purchased for a donation starting at $25.00. The donor may choose a topic of special interest for the book.  A bookplate with the name of the honored person and the name of the donor is displayed in the book as a permanent remembrance.  A memorial card will be sent to anyone you wish to be notified of your gift.

Special events, such as birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, promotions, may be celebrated by adding a book or other item to the library’s collection.  The bookplate will reflect the occasion/event and will include the name of the donor.  The person being honored will be notified of your gift and the title chosen.

Donations for these programs can be be made by visiting the library or by calling 610-820-2400 x141.  You may also mail a check with the information requested below to:
