Gifts & Memorials
The Library's gift and memorial program was established in the
1960s. Community members have donated funds to honor or remember
special events in their lives, such as marriages, births, anniversaries
or deaths. The memorial book program enables the Library to purchase
many extra items of high quality.
A gift to the Emporia Public Library in honor or in memory of
someone you love 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 by Emporians as it is circulated from person to
person to person to...
When your gift or memorial contribution is received, an acknowledgment
note will be sent to the family of the person memorialized or
to the person you have chosen to honor and recognize. 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.
Your contributions are a beautiful way to express your love and
respect for someone special. For more information, contact the
Library at (620) 340-6462.
