You can help the library in several ways. Each type of contribution allows the library to offer or maintain services that would not be possible without private support. These gifts do not reduce the city's responsibility to maintain basic operating funds for the library.

Your participation can expand the resources of the library, provide continuing benefit to the community and offer personal or corporate tax savings. Consult an attorney, bank trust officer or insurance professional for advice on the methods of giving that are most appropriate for your benefit as well as the long term growth of the library.

The Girard Public Library is a not-for-profit organization and has received a 501C3 designation. Your gifts are tax-deductible.

  Wills and Bequests

The Girard Public Library Board invites individuals to consider giving long term support to the library through wills and bequests. Undesignated gifts and bequests of funds or property to the library made through a will or directly will be administered by the Girard Public Library Board. Gifts may consist of cash, stocks and bonds, real estate or personal property.

  Memorials and Commemorative Gifts

The Library is able to offer a greater selection of reading and listening titles, and genealogy materials through memorial and commemorative donations. The library staff will select a book or non-print title in an interest area of the person being honored. A notification is sent to the family

A gift plate recognizes the honoree. This program is a lasting way of honoring a special person and helping the community.


Life insurance offers individual or corporate donors present and future tax advantages while increasing the library's ability to serve the community. Life insurance can be a direct charitable tax deduction. A charitable bequest allows the donor to own the policy and reduce estate taxation by naming the library as a beneficiary. Split dollar plans allow designated heirs and the library to be beneficiaries.


A variety of trust arrangements offer income tax savings while increasing the library's ability to serve the community. Several types of charitable trusts are recognized by the I.R.S. Trusts allow the donor to care for dependents, receive tax advantages and improve the community through the library.
