Memorials and Honorariums

The Findlay-Hancock County Public Library appreciates the opportunity to be part of a lasting tribute that will be enjoyed by the entire community.  Patrons often donate to the library to purchase a book(s) for a deceased family member, friend, or co-worker.  Other patrons donate to purchase a book(s) in honor of retirements, birthdays, anniversaries and special occasions.  

Donors may suggest specific titles or subjects for memorials/honorariums or allow our professional selectors to choose appropriate items.  A special bookplate will be placed in each donated book identifying the person being memorialized or honored, as well as the name of the donors.  

Donations may also be given for larger items, such as shelving, furniture or equipment.  Persons wishing to make larger donations $100 or more may also wish to consider a gift to the Findlay-Hancock County Public Library Fund at the Community Foundation.  Memorials or Honorariums may be made online, by mail or in-person using the form below.
