The Bookstore maintains a memorial wooden books shelf in the library. The spines are made of woods from around the world. When a loved one passes away, relatives or friends can commemorate him or her by purchasing a memorial wooden book engraved with the name of the deceased.
Each book costs $100. The money goes to the Friends of the Library, helping to pay for a multitude of library enhancing materials, classes, and programs for children and adults.
Memorial Books started in the early days of this branch's existence as part of the Maricopa County Library District, and was a community effort, beautifully constructed by the Sun Lakes Sawdust Club, financially assisted by the Lions Club.
