Memorial Gifts and Donations

A library donation is a meaningful way to celebrate friends and family. Your gift is the perfect way to remember the achievement, birthday, anniversary, or life of a loved one. Memorial gifts preserve the legacy of those remembered and honor the surviving family as well.

Palatine Public Library District welcomes donations of varying amounts. Every gift is acknowledged with a letter to the donor. Upon request, we will also notify the person, family or organization being honored.
