Tribute Collection Tribute gifts are a thoughtful way to remember friends and family for special occasions. A special bookplate is placed in each book in recognition of the individual.
A paver tile commemorating birthdays, anniversaries and memorials of your friends and family can be part of the walkway to the entrance of the Main Library for a cost of $100 to $150, depending on the length of the message.
Donors' Special Collection Major donations are recognized with the donor's name engraved on the spine of a book on the bronze bookshelf at the entrance of the Main Library. Lifetime donations begin at $5,000 on the lower shelf, $10,000 on the middle, and major contributions on the top Endowment Shelf. Donations for the Farmington Friends of the Library section are $2,500 for the lower shelf, $5,000 for the middle, and major contributions for the top Endowment Shelf.
Endowment Fund This is a self-renewing resource in which the gift's principal is invested in perpetuity with a portion of the interest income used annually for a stated purpose.
Wills and Bequests A planned gift to the Library offers an opportunity to create a meaningful legacy consistent with your personal values and financial objectives. An attorney, accountant or trust officer can provide assistance as you plan your gift.
We recognize that ALL donors, regardless of the size of their contributions, share a passion for reading and learning that collectively support our Library mission: ". . . .to facilitate independent learning and encourage the love of reading from early childhood throughout one's life."
Contributions are eligible for a 50% credit on state income tax and deductible on federal taxes.
