A gift to the Dunkirk Public Library provides a lasting tribute to someone special.


It is also a way to help the Dunkirk Public Library buy books and other library materials that are lasting gifts for everyone in the community.

Your contribution will be used entirely for the purchase of books or other library materials.  An acknowledgement letter, with no mention of amount, will be sent to whomever you wish.

Also, for every twenty dollars contributed, you may have a nameplate bearing an appropriate inscription placed in a new item.
