Memorials & Donations
Memorial gifts are most welcome, and are a thoughtful way to remember someone. You may ask the library to select a title that is needed for the collection or suggest a title or subject. We will promptly send a letter of acknowledgement to a relative of your loved one or whomever you select, with a copy to you, describing the donation.

Gift or Donation Examples
We appreciate all donations for the purchase of books (large print, for children, fiction and non-fiction), movies, audiobooks, furniture, globes and equipment.  We will work with you do determine which best suits your needs.

We also appreciate donations to honor someone, in which case we will send a letter of acknowledgement to that person informing him or her of your generosity and thoughtfulness. A check or cash gift may be given in honor or memory of someone, or to recognize a special event like an anniversary, birthday, graduation, or any special occasion.

Taxes & Limitations
All donations and gifts to the library are fully tax-deductible, and are subject to the same criteria that apply to purchased materials.  Only those with no limitations or restrictions can be accepted.

Previous Donations

Previous donations have celebrated bar and bat mitzvahs, births, birthdays, new homes, and holidays. One family gave a donation to the library when a special pet died and asked that a book on pets be selected.  A couple gives a donation to the library as their Christmas gift to their neighbors.  A book club gave a  teak bench for the Library's garden entrance, and gives donations for books to memorialize deceased members.

We thank all those who  have given gifts and donations to the Highland Park Library.
