Honor with Books

  • “…books are the carriers of civilization. Without books history is silent, literature dumb, science crippled, thought and speculation would have been impossible. They are engines of change, windows on the world and lighthouses erected in the sea of time. They are companions, teachers, magicians, bankers of the treasures of the mind. Books are humanity in print.”
    —Barbara Tuchman, Historian

    Honor With Books provides a means to mark special occasions and special people with lasting recognition. With a donation of $50 or more, the library will place a bookplate in a newly purchased book. The bookplate will recognize both the donor and the person honored. It is a permanent addition to the library’s collection—appropriate for graduations, memorial tributes, retirements, weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, and personal or professional achievements.

    The library will send an acknowledgement to the donor with a copy to the honoree, or to the family of the person memorialized informing them of the donation.

    For information on participating in Honor With Books contact Joann Janosko, Collection Development Librarian at (724) 357-6106 or Janosko@iup.edu.
