Lockport Public Library Endowment Fund:

Donations and bequests may be given to the Lockport Public Library Endowment Fund, established in 2001 to provide for future growth and financial stability of the Library's collections and services. Gifts to the Endowment Fund must be specifically directed and payable to the "Lockport Public Library Endowment Fund," and may be sent to the Library or directly to the Niagara Area Foundation, c/o Community Foundation for Greater Buffalo, 712 Main Street, Buffalo, NY 14202-1720.


By leaving a gift to the Library in a will, a person leaves behind a legacy of community literacy. Bequests to the Lockport Public Library Endowment Fund or to the Library contribute to the information, education, and entertainment of the community.

The Donor Tree:

Our beautiful and unique donor tree graces the Library's entrance hall, providing a permanent symbol of our community's generosity. Donations to the Library of $1,000 or more may be acknowledged by a leaf on the tree. Leaves may be inscribed with the donor's name or family, in honor or in memory of a loved one.

Memorial or Honor Books:

Leave a lasting memorial to a loved one or honor the celebrations of life by making a donation for book purchases. An acknowledgment of the gift is sent to the family. A bookplate will be added to each selection with a minimum donation of $25.00. Donations up to $25.00 are gratefully accepted for the general book fund. (See a selected list of titles that were paid for by memorial donations to the library)
