Memorial Gifts

Reading under the shade of trees in the Cupertino library courtyardMany individuals and organizations wish to make contributions to their local community libraries. A gift may be used to memorialize a loved one, to celebrate an important occasion in the life of a friend or relative, or to enrich the library's resources.

  • Contributions are used to provide books, magazines, and other useful materials for your community library.
  • A bookplate inscribed with the name of the donor and the person honored is placed in each volume purchased with your gift.
  • The person honored or the family of the one memorialized is notified of the gift without mention of the amount. Donors receive an official acknowledgement from the Santa Clara County Library.
  • Each donation enables groups and individuals to share with the community as well as to mark occasions of recognition and remembrance through a thoughtful and enduring gift to the library.
  • Donations are tax-deductible. The Federal Tax I.D. number for the Santa Clara County Library is 35-2345011.
