MEMORIALS and HONORARIUMS

memorialGifts to Pekin Public Library are a wonderful way to honor a beloved person.  Contributions made in memory of a special person may be designated for areas of the library (children’s, local history room, etc.) or for particular items (such as summer reading program.)

Honorariums are a unique gift for anyone in your life who loves to read or has a particular connection to reading,  education, or the library system.  An honorary can be made for any special occasion such as birthdays, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, anniversary or retirement.   Often specific book titles or authors are gifted on those occasions.

Both types of gifts are acknowledged – cards are sent from Pekin Public Library to the honored person or their family. You may send information regarding gifts directly to the library at: 301 South 4th Street; Pekin, IL 61554 or online at our e-pay site.
