Support :: Donor Plaque Commemoratives

Your Name Here!


From its artist-created design to its prominent position in the library's lobby, the Donor Wall is a fitting testimonial to the many patrons who made the La Jolla/Riford Library what it is today.

The Donor Wall has 80 decorative acrylic plaques, each 12 inches wide by 4 inches high, engraved with donor names and sentiment that are expressed in beautifully incised lettering. To complete the concept, plaques are attached to a metal framework that references the artist’s decorative railings at the grand staircase and main desk. 

There is still a place for your name or your family’s name!  Many people have also used the donor wall as a memorial to a loved one. A minimum of $1,000 donation is necessary to be part of this generous outpouring of support for our community.

Each acrylic plaque contains one to three lines of personal inscription.  Each line allows for 25 characters including letters AND spaces.  You may be as brief or expansive as you wish within those parameters.

When you are ready to proceed with ordering a Recognition Plaque, please contact our Friends Development Committee Chair, or call your Head Librarian at (858) 552-1657.
