Library Legacy Program:
A program where families are encouraged to purchase library books as living memorials to honor relatives and friends.  This is a great way to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries, etc.  We will place a bookplate in each donated book as a reminder of the donor and the honoree, along with the date of donation.  We hope everyone will participate in the improvement of our book collection in this way!!
