Thank you for considering a donation to the Palatine Library.

Renovation Naming Opportunities

As part of our Renovation Project, we are making available an even greater way for our community to become involved. Make an investment into your community by supporting the Library with a donation in exchange for naming a section of the Library for yourself or a loved one.

Gifts and donations are a vital way to support the future of the Library, its collections, services, and programs.


Financial donations are available in several dollar amount increments, ranging from $5,000 to $50,000. The naming time period for each space is determined by the level of donation commitment.


A plaque will be added to the space in honor of your donation. Donors will also be recognized in our newsletter, on digital monitors in the Main Library, and listed on our website. Donors will be invited to attend any ribbon-cutting ceremonies.
