To develop long-term support for the Library, the Friends have established a book endowment fund. A contribution of $500 creates an account generating interest which will purchase in perpetuity books in the name of the donor or in memory of someone the donor designates. Each account will be recognized with a plaque affixed to the donor memorial column located on the main floor of the Library while each book will receive a special plate identifying it as a gift from the Book Endowment.
Donors may add to an existing account at any time in any amount or may create additional new accounts. A list of new titles purchased is published in the Friends newsletter each year. For details about establishing an account, please call Charles Frey at (309) 677-2823 or click Book Endowment Fund.
