Make a Donation or Memorial

Thank you for considering the South Milwaukee Public Library or the Friends of the South Milwaukee Public Library as a possible recipient of your donation. We are able to do more and offer more services with your donation. Below outlines some of the different ways your donations can help.

Memorial Donation

If you would like to honor or memorialize a special person or event, you can do this through a memorial donation. You can do this by donating funds to the library in that person’s name. The Director would work in partnership with each memorial donation to ensure that it is used in a way that would best represent the person being memorialized. Please call or e-mail the library for more information.
