Gifts and Memorials

Community members have donated funds to honor or remember special events in their lives, such as marriages, births, anniversaries or deaths. The memorial program enables the Library to purchase many extra items of high quality as needed and to enhance the appearance of the library.
A gift to the Marion City Library in honor or memory of someone loved perpetuates the memory of the deceased or gives recognition to a friend, relative or loved one. The gift, in essence, becomes a “living memorial” that will always be appreciated and cherished as it is viewed by patrons of the library.
When a gift or memorial contribution is received, an acknowledgment note will be sent to the family of the person memorialized or to the person who was chosen to be honored and recognized. The amount of your gift is confidential and is never mentioned.
An attractive book plate will be placed in the front of each book indicating to whom the book is dedicated and the name of the donor. Larger items will also be recognized by the addition of a memorial plaque to the item.

Your contributions are a beautiful way to express your love and respect for someone special.
