   Gifts of Remembrance.  A very unique tribute for library patrons to appreciate and remember someone special for years to come.  A bookplate will be place inside the front cover of an item that you have selected to honor a birth, death, anniversary, graduation, marriage, or other special occasion.

  The Evergreens Donor Tree is a wall sculpture of golden leaves recognizing those benefactors gifting over $500.

  The Giving Tree is a little artificial pine tree inside the library that is decorated with seasonal gift tags and designed to help add items to the various library collections.  Simply select a “gift tag” from the tree.  You may purchase the item yourself and then “gift” it to the library or provide a monetary donation to cover the cost of the gift.

 Focus on the Future Fund.  Help us maintain the legacy of our beautiful library.  You can now make a donation by enrolling in the library’s direct deposit savings account at Tomahawk Community Bank.  The funds from this savings account will be used for future building projects, technology, and program enhancements.  For more information, phone the library at:        715-453-2455 or the Tomahawk Community Bank at 715-453-2144
