“Adopt” a Star on the Springfield Library Donor Wall
The donor wall at the entrance to the Springfield Free Public Library was established in 2015 as a way to encourage donations to the library and beautify the area in front of the circulation desk.
During this holiday season, library supporters are reminded that they can “adopt” a star on the library’s donor wall as a way of honoring or memorializing a family members or friend who loves the library. Available in three sizes, stars that are adopted at the $1,000, $500 and $250 levels will be engraved with the name of the person being honored. Donations collected through this project will go toward the purchase and renovation of furniture and other fixtures so that the library can remain a vibrant and inviting place to visit for many years to come.
The initial seed money for the donor wall came from a generous bequest from the estate of Lila Lustig, a longtime resident of Springfield. In addition to honoring those who have passed away, naming a star for a child or grandchild is a great way to help kids get hooked on the joys of reading and to provide them with a lasting connection to their library.
Anyone who would like to find out more about the donor wall project is invited to call Library Director Dale Spindel at 973 376-4930, ext. 227
