Books-Library Giving - Carnegie Mellon University

Commemorative book

Celebrate a birthday or graduation, or make a memorial gift. We select a new book for the library and inscribe a commemorative message (bookplate). We inform both you and the honoree or family member about the gift book. Suggested donation: $100 per book.

Indicate Library support and Additional Comments: BOOK. Include details about honoree, occasion, and whom to notify

Collection materials

Indicate Library support and Additional Comments: COLLECTION. Include details about subject area and media format.
