Direct Donations

Donations can be made to any branch to purchase library materials, equipment, or to sponsor library programs.

Memorial & Tribute Contributions

Gifts in memory or in honor of a family member or friend are welcomed. Contributions can be made to any branch to purchase library materials. There are several ways to make a contribution to your library:

Memorial Book

Memorial books may be purchased with contributions of $35 and above. A memorial book is a simple, thoughtful way to honor the memory of a loved one. Library staff will select a book in the subject area of your choice. A bookplate is placed in the front of each memorial book showing the name of the deceased and the donor. We will send a letter to family members notifying them of your gift.

Tribute Book

Tribute books may be purchased with contributions of $35 and above. A tribute book is a wonderful way to honor loved ones on a special occasion -- such as a birthday or holiday, wedding or anniversary, graduation or promotion -- to recognize a special achievement, or to show thanks to a business or a friend. Library staff will select a book in the subject area of your choice. A bookplate is placed in the front of each tribute book showing the name of the honoree and the donor. We will send a letter to the honoree notifying them of your gift.

Memorial Book Fund

All contributions below $35 will be placed in a memorial book fund. These funds are used to strengthen areas of the collection. A bookplate will be placed in the books selected stating: This book was purchased with contributions to the memorial book fund. Neither the name of the deceased nor the donor will appear in these books. We will send a letter to family members notifying them of your gift.

Donations of Materials

Books, audio-visual materials, and other items may be donated to any library location (Donation Policy). Materials not used in the library's collection will be sold at library book sales. You may request a tax receipt stating the number of items donated.

We will be happy to answer your questions if you are interested in finding out more about making a donation to the Linebaugh Public Library System. For any questions on donations and memorials, please contact Collection Development Coordinator, Valerie Rollins at (615) 893-4131, ext. 121.
