All books donated to the Mrs. Shaw’s Fund will be labeled with a commemorative bookplate. Each plate has a space for someone’s name. When checking out from the Online Bookstore, you will see a blank box for a note. Although a dedication is optional, in this box you may:
- add the name of someone you wish to honor or memorialize.
- add your name as donor.
- leave the box blank, in which case the bookplate will read Friends of the Knight Memorial Library.
