Memorials are gifts/donations made in memory of a loved one. These may be of any amount, and you may choose to have the money benefit a Book Fund, a Programming Fund, a Building Fund, or a Technology Fund. You will receive a confirmation letter for your donation, and it will be acknowledged in the library’s Memorial Book at the Circulation Desk, and on the website.

The Steger-South Chicago Heights Library offers Gift Bricks that may be purchased by our patrons. Each brick may be engraved with a personal message, and will be displayed as a brick path around our Children’s Reading Garden. All donations are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by the law. The Steger-South Chicago Heights Public Library maintains the right of final approval for all engravings.
