Giving to the Library
A donation to the Lillie M. Evans Library District is an investment in our community and our future. As a member of the Illinois Library Associations's Fund for Illinois Libraries, the Lillie M. Evans Library is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization and donations are tax deductible. A gift to the capital campaign will ensure that our library will grow so it can continue to enrich and support our community. Memorial donations support collection growth and improvements which would not be possible without the generosity of our donors. The Library's collections are enhanced by donations of materials.
Opportunities for Giving Include:
The library will be undergoing a library construction project in 2016. We have already secured grants, funds and pledges totaling over half of the $1.8 million needed but any additional donations will allow us to limit the size of our loan. Gifts of any size are important and appreciated. Donation form is available here.
Donations in honor or in memory of a loved one may be designated for the purchase of a specific item OR can be made to the Memorial Fund.
You may suggest specific items, titles or subjects or Library staff can suggest something appropriate to honor and remember relatives and friends. An acknowledgment of all donations will be sent to both the donor and the family (or other designee) of the person being remembered. Commemorative bookplates listing the donor and the honoree will be placed on all materials purchased.
