____________________________________________FINANCIAL DONATIONS AND NAMING POLICY
2. Lois Hole Legacy Program
The Brooks Public Library is a participant in the Lois Hole Legacy Program "Grow Your
Library". Individuals who wish to make memorial donations in their own honour or in
honour of someone else are encouraged to take part in this program. Please refer to the
Procedures and Guidelines (Attachment C).
If library users do wish to make a memorial donation, the Head Librarian must
approve the selection of any titles.
All donations for which the donor does not request anonymity will be acknowledged
by the Head Librarian with a Brooks Public Library thank you card.
When a prestigious donation is received, if the donor consents, appropriate publicity
will be arranged. This results in favourable public relations and general good will.
Donated library materials or equipment purchased specifically for the Library or with
money donated to the Library can be acknowledged by affixing a book plate or other
name plate to the material or equipment.
4. Naming Criteria
Based on Service
A proposal is formally made to the Board to name a new or existing area or
facility in honour of an individual for service to the library or the community. A detailed
justification and explanatory materials must be included with the proposal.
Based on Financial Gifts and Donations
To name a new or renovated area, donors are expected to provide the
primary donation toward the total cost of constructing or renovating the area.
