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.
