City Library’s donor recognition program aims to recognize and acknowledge the contributions of our many donors and supporters. All donations of $25 or more receive a charitable tax receipt, letter of thanks, recognition in the annual community report and on the website.

Donors may elect to remain anonymous and may decline private or public recognition.
