Memorial Book Program

The Arthur Johnson Memorial Library sponsors the Memorial Book Program. This program has been in effect for decades and has added many wonderful materials to the collection in memory of many loved ones. Individuals may give any amount of money in memory of someone. The materials selected can be chosen by the family members, the library, or the person donating the book. Occasionally materials themselves are donated, if first approved by the librarian. (This avoids donations of materials already held by the library.) The book or material may be paid for at the time of the request, or paid for when the book or material is purchased by the library and in the collection. At the time of the request or donation, the library sends a card to the family member specified by the donor, informing them that a book has been donated in memory of their loved one. This type of donation lasts for years and benefits the many patrons who use the library.
