West Newton Public Library is encouraging patrons to consider honoring a friend or loved one by purchasing a book in their name. The cost is $25, a spokeswoman said.
People who want to memorialize someone should tell the library about their favorite author or their interests so that the library can purchase an appropriate item. The acknowledgement will be placed inside the front cover.
The person being honored, or their family, will receive a notification of the gift.
Sponsorship forms are available at the library during regular business hours, or a check and a letter may be mailed to West Newton Public Library, 124 N. Water St., West Newton 15089. Donors should include their own contact information, as well as contact information for the family or the person being recognized.
