• Memorials and Honorariums

    The Hardin High School Library encourages members of the community and alumni to contribute to our schools. Patrons often donate to the library to purchase a book(s) for a deceased family member, friend, or co-worker. Other Patrons donate to purchase a book(s) in honor of retirements, birthdays, aniversaries and special occasions.

    Donors may suggest titles or subjects for memorials/honorariums or allow the library to select new materials. A special book card will be placed in each donated book identifying the person being memorialized or honored, as well as the name of the donors. 

    Books are doorways to knowledge and our school libraries aim to promote and produce books on all subjects for every reader and student. The school and library thank you for your support and generosity. It is an honor to remember members of our community who showed their support for our schools. Contact the school if you wish to donate today!! 

    "Building a better Hardin, one student at a time."
