Memorial and Honor Book Requests

The library's Memorial and Honor program is a wonderful way to remember loved ones and friends who have passed away. This program also provides a unique way to honor special events such as birthdays, graduations and anniversaries. Your tax deductible gift to the North Baltimore Public Library will not only be a lasting tribute but also bring enjoyment and enrichment to the community.

A gift may be given to the Library in any amount the donor wishes. Books or other library materials may be selected.  The average cost of a book is $25-$35.  The Library will choose something that fits the interest of the person being remembered or honored. The donor may also request a specific title, but please be aware that the library will choose an alternate title if the book requested is out of print or otherwise unavailable. The requested title also must fit with the library's collection development policies and practices.

Each gift book will have a special bookplate which gives the name of the person to whom the book is dedicated and the name of the donor. With each memorial, a card is sent to the person being honored or the designated surviving family member.
