Signage Update:


Due to a combination of supply chain delay issues, production equipment problems, and winter storms, some of our signage for our 1,000 donors has been delayed. Bear with us. We expect the donor plaques to be in place by the end of January, the Medford Giving Tree to be in place by the end of January, the Commemorative Tiles to be installed by early March, and the ceramic clay tiles to be installed after the arrival of permanent shelving in the Children’s & Teen’s Room in early spring. 

Naming Opportunities are still available! We will be using temporary signage for multi-donor plaques until the final signs go up in advance of June 1st.

See highlighted naming opportunities below:

We are proud to inaugurate the Charlotte & William Bloomberg Book Fund, an ongoing resource for special collections and acquisitions. This fund, supplemental to the annual budget, will allow the library staff to identify needs and improve collection areas. This fund will help to start new collections, add new formats, improve accessibility, promote literacy, celebrate Medford's history, and provide materials in diverse voices. Each founding donor will receive a signed limited edition print of the Book Fund bookplate by the artist Glendalys Medina.

All available naming opportunities can be found on our Donate Page.
