As a part of the continued development of the library’s new Reading Garden, the Library Board is offering patrons an opportunity to purchase an inscribed paver brick to serve as a memorial for an individual, family, or business.
Many bricks have been purchased so far and may be inscribed with up to four lines. Each line will contain up to 12 spaces, including blanks. A paver brick may be purchased for $100 each, and these bricks will be incorporated in the walkway throughout the outdoor area.
