The Jackson County Public Library welcomes donations from members of our community. The library will acknowledge gifts of $100 or more on a bronze recognition tree leaf prominently displayed in the Seymour Library lobby. Engraved stones will display names of those donating at least $1,500. Donors may give money in the name of a business, individual or as a memorial.
Purchasing gift and memorial books is a wonderful and unique way to remember loved ones or to mark special occasions such as births, birthdays, graduations, weddings and anniversaries. Civic-minded businesses might also want to make a contribution to the community by contacting the Head of Information Services and donating a reference set or magazine subscription to the library.
With your contribution, the Library will purchase an item in the category you choose. For instance, if the person you are honoring with a memorial book was an avid gardener, the library will be happy to enhance its collection by selecting a book about gardening. If you are a physician, you may choose to sponsor a donation to the health reference collection.
Acknowledgement of your gift is sent to the individual or the family of the person being honored. A bookplate imprinted with your name and the name of the person being honored is placed in the book before it goes on the shelf for check-out.
