Holiday Gifts

Gift membership

There must be someone on your holiday gift list that just has you stumped. Why not give that fortunate person a gift membership in the Friends of the Platt Library? You help the library and get your shopping done all at once. Special Gift Membership forms are available at the Reference Desk and in the Book Store, or you may use the attached form. If you do, be sure to indicate that the membership is a gift from you.

Gift matching programs

You can also give your library a gift without spending any money if you work for or are retired from a corporation that has a Gift Matching Program. Many Los Angeles area employers do, including Boeing, CIGNA and Sempra Energy. To DOUBLE the value of your membership contribution, just send us your company's gift matching form, and we will do the rest.

Thanks for joining or staying with us this year!

Ruth Bromund,
Membership V.P. 887-9227
