Planned Giving

Planned gifts ensure the Library's future financial security, helping us continue to grow and evolve, and provide free access to Library services for generations to come. Anyone can leave a legacy gift of any size, and there are simple ways to do it. We'd welcome the opportunity to work with you to create a structure that suits your passions, and works within your overall estate plans.

Inquiries will be handled confidentially and place you under no obligation. To learn more about planned giving, please contact Karen Beach at 704-416-0802 or
