Honor with Books

Remember and Celebrate People and Events

Honor with Books pays a lasting tribute to special people in your life and conveys your personal commitment to learning and advancing knowledge.

In recognition of each gift made to Honor with Books, the University Library will place a commemorative bookplate in a newly purchased book in the subject area of your choosing. The bookplate will bear the name of the donor and the person in whose honor the gift is being made. A copy of the personalized bookplate will be sent to both you and your honoree, along with the title and call number of the book. For generations to come, each time the book is used, your honoree will be recognized, and your gift will be appreciated.

Gifts to Honor with Books are directed to a special library fund that provides critical support for the acquisition of new books and titles, helping to maintain Portland State Library's excellence in teaching and research.

Remember Honor with Books for:

  • Graduations
  • Birthdays
  • Memorial Tributes
  • Weddings and Anniversaries
  • Professional Honors and Retirements

$100 Places a bookplate in one newly purchased book in the subject area of your choosing.
