Memorials and Gifts

The Kirkland Public Library thanks those who have honored friends and family members through the Memorial and Gift Fund Program.  Over the past year we have received donations in memory of Harry and Janice Smith, and John and Marian Heinsohn.

Library material donations are a wonderful way to honor a friend or relative.  We would like to thank all the families who have been extremely generous to the Kirkland Public Library. For further information on memorials and gifts, please call 815: 522-6260.
