Memorial Book Program
Monessen Public Library & Cultural Center wants to remind friends and patrons of the library’s memorial and remembrance program.
A book can provide a lasting tribute to the memory of a loved one or provide a unique way to honor special events such as birthdays, graduations, anniversaries, or other special occasions. Your tax deductible gift to the library will not only be a lasting memorial, but will also bring enjoyment and knowledge to the community. The Library also does pet memorial books for the loss of a furry family member.
Each gift book will have a special bookplate which gives the name of the person to whom the book is dedicated and the name of the donor. The library will also send a letter to the person being honored or the surviving family.
Donors may suggest a specific title or have the librarian choose a title in a designated subject area. New and popular fiction provides an excellent source for the deceased being remembered through maximum circulations of the item. The minimum donation for a memorial book is $25.00, through which the library chooses a book. For a $30.00 or more donation, the patron may choose a specific subject.
