Monetary Donations

Monetary contributions to the Library support the purchase of books and other materials to maintain the Library’s status as a premier facility. Donations may be in the form of a memorial or tribute to an individual.

Donors may suggest subject areas for purchase if the gift is intended to improve the collection. While specific titles may be suggested, the librarian is charged with selecting an appropriate title that will best meet the collection development guidelines.

If you would like to make a general donation to support Library services, consider becoming a Friend of the Library.

All gifts will be acknowledged with a receipt. The staff member accepting the gift should obtain the name and address of the donor, as well as any information concerning a person honored or remembered with the gift. Acknowledgement is also sent to the person(s) requested by the donor, i.e., a bereaved family.

Your gift may be tax deductible, please consult with your tax adviser.

Memorials & Tributes

Tribute Collection: Tribute gifts are a thoughtful way to remember friends and family for special occasions. Your gift will greatly enhance Library collections and resources for our community.

Donors’ Special Collection: Major donations are recognized with the donor’s name engraved on the spine of a book on the bronze bookshelf at the entrance of the Farmington Hills location.

Endowment Fund: This is a self-renewing resource in which the gift’s principal is invested in perpetuity with a portion of the interest income used annually for a stated purpose.

Wills and Bequests: A planned gift to the Library offers an opportunity to create a meaningful legacy consistent with your personal values and financial objectives. An attorney, accountant or trust officer can provide assistance as you plan your gift.
