Memorial and Honorary Tributes
Donations to the Johnson County Public Library Foundation in honor of, in memory of someone, or to mark a significant event are used to purchase books or support the Library’s literary initiatives.
Celebrate, Remember, Rejoice
Honor someone special in your life or someone who has done something special for you. Tribute gifts are an excellent way to recognize someone special, acknowledge a noteworthy event, and help JCPL buy more books or support library programs. A custom bookplate identifies a tribute book as a reminder of your thoughtfulness. An acknowledgment letter is sent to the recipient or recipient’s family to inform them of your generous gift.
One-Time Book Tributes
With one-time tributes, for every $25 donated, one inscribed bookplate of the person being honored, and if desired, the name of the donor is placed in a newly purchased book at the Library.
Book Club Sponsorships
JCPL will purchase multiple copies of a title for a book club program for your gift of $150. The books will receive a special bookplate acknowledging your extraordinary effort in honoring a friend, relative or special event. Library staff will select the title based on popular book discussion topics. It will be available for the monthly eight book clubs held at JCPL.
Support Literary Initiatives
We welcome any level of donation in honor of a loved one or special event to support JCPL literary initiatives. Programs like 1000 Books Before Kindergarten, Authors at JCPL, and Explore Summer, our summer learning program, are some initiatives your donation would support.
