Donations and Memorials

A gift to the Library benefits the whole community. Monetary donations to purchase books or non-print materials and funding for programs and services are welcome.

Gifts may also be made to the Library in honor or in memory of a person, to celebrate a
family event or to mark any special occasion. An acknowledgement of gifts is sent to the person being honored; memorial gifts are acknowledged to the family of the deceased. Book memorials are recognized with a book plate bearing the name of the donor and the name of the person for whom the book was purchased. You may specify an area of interest or leave the selection to the Library.

We deeply appreciate the donations we receive from members of the community.  Donations to the library are generally tax-deductible, to the extent allowed by law.

You may call Library Director Sandra Pointon at (630) 257-6541 or email spointon@lemontlibrary.org with any questions you may have.

A Fisher House is “a home away from home” for family members, caregivers or loved ones of patients receiving medical care at major military and VA medical centers. It is a temporary residence and is not a treatment facility, hospice or counseling center.  By law, there is no charge for any family to stay at a Fisher House operated by the Department of Veterans Affairs.
