Memorial Gift Book Program

As one of our special services at Fredricksen Library & East Pennsboro Branch, we offer a unique way to remember a loved one while contributing to your community. Our Memorial Gift Book Program enables you to have a book with a personalized bookplate placed in our collection for all to enjoy.


What is a Book Plate?

A book plate is a 3”W x 4”H decorative, personalized label that is affixed inside the front cover of the selected book. The book plate will remain in the book for as long as the book is part of the Library’s collection.

Acknowledgement Cards                                                                                                         In addition, an acknowledgement card identifying you as the donor will be sent. Samples of the card styles are shown below, or available to select at the library.









How it Works

$15 up to $25:

When friends or family make a tax-deductible contribution of up to $25, accompanied by the attached order form, library staff will select a book from within the Library’s current collection for a specially designed personalized book plate. 

$25 or more:  A tax-deductible contribution of $25 or more instructs library staff to purchase a number of books up to the value of at least half of your donation in the subject area of your choice.  The remainder of your donation will be used for collection development in areas of need.



For questions about the Memorial Gift Book Program and information about other giving opportunities, please contact the Development Office at 717-761-3900 extension 244.
