Donor Tree

Our Donor Tree has been growing since the library moved to its current building in 1996. The tree of commemorative leaves and stones is located near the first floor lobby by the DVD and CD collections.

If you wish to have your name become a lasting part of the library, or are looking to honor a special person or occasion, memorialize a loved one, or recognize an organization or business, please consider purchasing one of these personalized, one-of-a-kind gifts.

  A leaf on the tree can be purchased for $250. You can personalize it with three lines up to 24 characters for lines one and three, 28 characters for line two.Stones at the base of the tree can also be purchased. A small stone is $1,500 and a large boulder is $5,000. Although there is no set character limit for these, please keep in mind that the longer the inscription, the smaller the text size will be.

  Donate online using your credit card or PayPal.
