Naming Opportunities

Annual Naming Opportunity at the Central Library

The Library Foundation annually recognizes donors who join the foundation or make a gift at the $2,500 level or above during a calendar year. The marble donor wall is outside the Library’s front doors along the breezeway leading to the Bamboo Courtyard adjacent to Avocado Ave.  Donor wall participants are recognized at an annual reception in Fall as a way to say THANK YOU for making the library accessible to all.

Naming Opportunities at the Central Library

Naming an area at the Central Library is a rare and special opportunity to have recognition in perpetuity in a space designed by one of the world’s premier architectural firms: Bohlin Cywinski Jackson. The funds we have received to date have enabled us to finance larger-scale projects for the library including the total renovation of the Popular Library in 2015.
