Building a Better Library – One Book at a Time!

How can you make a lasting impact on your community?

You can help Lilly Library fill the shelves with current library books, movies and other library media. Remembering or honoring a loved one is a wonderful opportunity to support your library and to help it build its collection.   Your tax deductible contribution will be used to purchase library material in the format and subject of your choice, when possible.  Your name or the name of someone you wish to honor will appear on the bookplate in the books or items your purchase.

A Gift, a Commemoration

An Honorarium is a unique way to say Happy Birthday, Happy Anniversary, or Congratulations to a special person.  Or, cherish  passed loved ones with a gift in their memory.

Club Projects

Does your club or organization wish to help the community?  A gift to Lilly Library  is a great way to encourage literacy, support education, and more.
