From time to time, the Garden City Public Library responds to requests from patrons about memorials, gifts, and endowments to the Library in honor or memory of someone. One manner of gift giving to the Library is to choose a book or media item as a gift. The book may be purchased by a patron and given to the Library in someone’s memory, or money can be given to the Library to make a purchase in someone’s memory. The chosen item will have an acknowledgement of the gift giver and the name of the person being honored adhered to the item.
Many public organizations are the beneficiary of endowments from the public. In the past, when the Library has received such endowments, the Library has worked with the family heirs to identify specific projects they believe would reflect the named individual’s interest or desire as a long-lasting testament. When large endowments have been made, plaques have been installed to commemorate the gift.
