An increasing number of donors choose to memorialize or honor a special friend or family member by making a gift in their name. For instance, a patron recently donated a book to our woodworking collection in honor of a friend’s father who taught Shop in the Cheyenne school system.
Donating to the Laramie County Library is a special way to memorialize or honor relatives and friends. With your tax-deductible contribution ($25 minimum) the library will purchase a book or entertainment media. You may wish to specify an area of interest from which the library will try to select the material. Acknowledgement of your gift is sent to the person being honored; memorial gifts are acknowledged to the family of the deceased. A printed plate, bearing your name and the name of the person for whom it was purchased, is placed in the gift. If you would like more information on this excellent way of honoring a special person in your life, contact Gilda Lara, director at 307-773-7221 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
