Memorial Books

The Tigard Library welcomes donations to purchase memorial books in honor of friends and relatives who have passed away. Donors may specify purchases for the Adult, Young Adult or Children's collections and request a particular area of interest. Library staff can also recommend appropriate titles or subject areas.

A memorial bookplate with the names of both the person to be honored and the donor will be placed in the books. The donor may remain anonymous if he/she wishes. If the donor consents, designated family and friends of the deceased will be notified of the gift.
