How to Purchase / Donate Books

Celebrate the birthday of a special child with a donation in their honor.

With your donation of $15, the Library will purchase an age appropriate title to add to the children’s library collection.

We will place a special bookplate inside the book to honor your child.

Your child will receive a birthday bookmark and will be called so he, or she, can be first to borrow the book.

Memorial and Honorarium Donations

Thank you for your interest in the Manheim Community Library’s Gift Program.  Dedicating a book or other materials at the Library is a unique way to honor the memory of friends and loved ones.  For each memorial donation, the Library will select a book or other library material.  If a special subject or type of book is requested, we will do our best to honor the request.  A card announcing your gift will be sent to the person you honor or the family of the person you remembered.

A book plate announcing your gift is inserted in the front of every dedicated book.  Gifts in memory or in honor of someone may be made by filling out the form at the link below and sending your check for $15 to Manheim Community Library.
