Commemorative bricks are the perfect way to remember a loved one, provide a testimonial, or be a part of the City you call home.

Your tax-deductible purchase supports the Friends of the Library.

The donor may choose the park for brick installation. The initial campaign runs from October 12 2023 through January 31 .
