Show your support for Doherty Library and create a lasting memory to honor someone special.

Help the Doherty Library in honoring a mentor or someone you care about by sponsoring a book! When you make a gift of $20.00 or more; you choose the subject area of the book, receive a certificate and an acknowledgment of the book chosen on your behalf from the library’s collection. 

A Doherty Librarian will email the donors and get subject area information.

A gift notice will be placed on the inside front cover of each book you sponsor, acknowledging your honoree for as long as your sponsored book is in the Doherty Library Collection.  Your thoughtful generosity through a sponsored book will show your support for someone you care about while also showing support for our library and University.

Please consider one or several book sponsorships and let those close to you know you care about them!
