Donations honor individuals by providing books or other library materials for the use of the Whitehall community. You may honor both living and deceased individuals. Celebrate a significant anniversary or birthday, or just honor someone who is special to you.
We will put a bookplate inside any materials that you purchase through the library. This bookplate tells everyone that uses the material you donated it to honor your special person. In addition, we list the materials donated in our library catalog under the person's name. You can search our catalog by the person's name to see the donated material.
To make a donation complete this form and return with your check to make a donation.
