contacted to approve the selection.
A bookplate will be inserted in the book naming the person who
gave the book and the person is was given to honor. The same information
is recorded in the Accession Book next to the item's number.
The family of the deceased will receive a card from the Community
Library stating the gift.
The item given to the library will be noted in the Memorials and
Honors Book so the book may be retrieved for anyone wishing it.
Memorials in the past have purchased equipment, books, and
periodicals and even given land to the library. At the present the
library holds funding for some furnishings, landscaping and a heritage

Because the library buys books in quantity, it saves the donor to
give the library money to purchase the books through the library
jobbers. The Library Director will help the person find the right item
for the gift and explain options to the donor.
