The Perry Public Library accepts donations in memory of someone who has passed away, in honor of a special occasion (i.e. birthday, anniversary, etc.), or just because.
When making a recommendation for the use of the gift, the following parameters apply:
- Library Materials means that the money will be spent on books, CDs, DVDs or any other type of library material for patron circulation. Please note what type of material and a specific subject of interest of the honoree. Based on the information provided, the library will use the money to purchase something that suits the collection and serves as a fitting memorial.
- If Library Equipment is selected, the donation will be placed in the Equipment Repair and Replacement fund. Money from that fund is used to purchase chairs, computers, office equipment, toys for the Children's Area and more.
- Money donated to the Building Fund can be spent on any capital improvements made to the Library.
- If No Preference is selected, the donation will be placed where the Library sees fit which can include programs, material, equipment and more.
If the donation is for the purchase of library materials (i.e. book, CD, DVD, etc), a bookplate will be placed in the front of each item with the information as provided on the form.
Gifts and Memorials may be highlighted in the library newsletter, in the local newspapers, and/or on the library website. If it is preferred that the donation be anonymous, please make a note of that on the form.
The Library sincerely appreciates the receipts of gifts by will for general or specific purposes. All such gifts are tax-deductible. All bequests received by the library will be placed into the Building Fund, unless specifically designated for other Library Board approved projects.
