brickgatherNext brick installation will be in the fall of 2016

The Indian Prairie Public Library Foundation invites you to make a gift that entitles you to a personalized, engraved brick to be placed in the lovely Reading Garden and the path leading to the garden.

The bricks are unique, one-of-a-kind gifts that are a perfect way to honor someone in your life or a special occasion, memorialize a loved one, or recognize an organization or business. They are also the perfect gift for the person who has everything.

With a gift of $75, you can personalize a 4" x 8" brick with three lines. A gift of $150 entitles you to personalize an 8" x 8" brick with up to six lines. If you are ordering a brick as a gift, please provide the gift recipient's information, and we will send them a notification. Duplicate bricks can be ordered as a keepsake for half the price.

Please note that the library reserves the right to approve any inscriptions. Look at inscriptions that others have made here.

Symbols can also be engraved on your brick.  Questions? Call 630/887-8760 ext. 245 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
