Brick Order Form
Memorial Bricks Engraved bricks are available through the Friends of the Library. You can buy a brick–or as many as you want–and by doing so you not only honor someone’s name, you will help us sponsor various programs at the library. The brick that you purchase will be added to the existing memorial brick patio located near the north entrance. Picture this: a serene and lovely place filled with the names of those we love and admire; a charming garden area; memorial benches. The patio is a place all library Friends can cherish. We hope you will become part of it. Bricks have three message lines with 14 characters (spaces count too) per line. If you have a long message and need more than one brick, the bricks will be placed in the arrangement you create. To order bricks see the order form. Forms are also available at the library.
