A Book Tribute is a meaningful way to recognize, thank or remember a special person or milestone event. Book Tributes also enhance the Library's collection by adding books that are beyond the Library's budget and would not be purchased otherwise.
The Library will inscribe your tribute message on a bookplate that will be placed in a newly purchased book. You can select one of four bookplate designs. The minimum gift for a Book Tribute is $15.
To give a book tribute, fill out the online form. For more information call 248-232-2307.
The Library's Endowment Fund was created as an ongoing source of funding for special collections, programs, projects and other special intentions that would not be funded otherwise by the Library's budget. The fund is used to complement basic services, which are funded through a millage.
A gift to the Endowment Fund remains intact and exists in perpetuity; only the income generated from the fund is used. This assures that gifts to the Endowment Fund will enhance and enrich the library experience for our community for generations to come.
A Donor Recognition Wall at the Main Library recognizes individuals and organizations that have donated to the Endowment
Fund at gold, silver and bronze levels. To make a contribution, fill out the online form, or
complete the paper form and mail it to West Bloomfield Township Public Library, 4600 Walnut Lake Road, West Bloomfield, MI 48323. For more information, please call 248-232-2307. All contributions are welcomed, but to donate less than $15.00, please use the mail-in form.
