Donations to the Library
A gift to the Livonia Public Library’s collection is a unique and enduring way to pay tribute to friends and family while giving a resource to the community for many to use and enjoy. You can be assured your gift will have meaning and purpose for many years to come.
Memorials & Commemoratives
Memorials & Commemoratives
Books and other library materials provide a remembrance for any type of occasion. A favorite book can serve as a memorial to someone dear now gone, a recording of a lullaby can be given on a child’s birthday, a book of poems can mark an anniversary, or a video on a newly found hobby can express hopes for a leisurely retirement.
A gift to the library can reflect the tastes or interests of the individual in whose honor the gift was given. A love of gardening might inspire a book on roses, or a historian can be remembered by a work on his or her favorite time.
Organizations can also show their appreciation for members of special merit, or merely use the donations as a way to help the library increase its collections in their special area. When you donate to the program, you may designate a particular title, subject area or type of material you would like purchased, or you may ask the library staff to use your contribution to purchase items where needed. A letter will be sent to the honoree or to his or her family to let them know about your thoughtful gift. A letter of acknowledgement goes to the donor as well. A book plate will be inscribed as you wish and placed on the item, letting the community share in the recognition of your loved one.
