Memorial & Honor Program

Book Memorials
Book Memorials are a thoughtful way to remember loved ones. At the Hazleton Area Public Library, commemorative books include more than just memorials.

Honor Books
Honor Books offer a lasting tribute to an individual, a group or association, an occasion, a milestone, or even a much loved pet!

The process is quick and easy. We will take your request over the phone, in person or by mail.

How much does it cost?
Prices start at $25.00. A larger gift enables us to purchase a more expensive book, or more than one $25.00 book. The choice is yours. Your gift is tax deductible.

Who chooses the book?
New titles added to the library's collection are subject to Hazleton Area Public Library's materials selection policy. You have the option of naming a general category (crafts, religion, education, etc.). The librarian in charge of acquisitions will choose a book in your price range and category whenever possible.

Will you send an acknowledgment?
Yes. Acknowledgments go to both the donor and to the person (or family) you ask us to notify. Please provide us with accurate information. A bookplate is placed in each book you purchase. Gifts are published in the local paper.

How long does it take?
Each order is handled personally. Book selection and acknowledgments are accomplished within a few days. The time needed to order, receive and process specially requested books normally takes 1 - 3 months. Occasionally there are delays from a publisher.

Can my gift go to a branch library?
Yes. You may designate the main library or any branch when you place your order.
