Donate Honor Books

Contribute in honor or in memory of a loved one.

Give the gift of a lifetime

One of the most generous gifts you can give the library is a bequest through your will, life insurance policy or trust. All you need to do is contact your lawyer or financial advisor and ask them to include the library in your plans. Gifts such as these ensure that your memory will be perpetuated for generations through the Abington Township Public Library.

Honor Books Program 

Stack of BooksHow many times have you wondered what to give your grandmother for her birthday when she already has everything and is trying to move to a smaller apartment anyway? Honor Books are a wonderful gift to consider.

For as little as $25, the library can purchase a book that will delight several generations of readers. In some cases, very generous contributions may be used to purchase entire subject collections of books that our patrons will enjoy and refer to again and again.

Each book purchased with your donation will contain a special bookplate, along with an inscription of the honoree’s name, the occasion and the date. An announcement of your gift to the Honor Books Program will be sent to the person you designate, informing them of your thoughtfulness. As the donor, you will receive a letter of thanks as well as a receipt for your tax-exempt contribution to the library.

Donors are encouraged to suggest a general topic of interest rather than specific titles. The librarians will make every effort to comply with the donor’s request, but reserve the right to make the final decision.

Stop by the Library Office or mail your contribution to Abington Free Library, 1030 Old York Road, Abington, PA  19001. Please include your name and address, the address of those you want informed, the name of the honoree and along with the honoree's subjects of interest.

Thank you!
