Dedicating a book from the Garden's LuEsther T. Mertz Library is a wonderful way to:
- Celebrate a birthday, anniversary, wedding, or retirement
- Commemorate the birth of a child or grandchild
- Pay tribute to the memory of a friend or loved one
For a gift of $ 250 or more, a permanent bookplate honoring your special person or occasion will be placed in a book in the LuEsther T. Mertz Library. Our library staff will assist you in selecting a book that reflects your interest. All donations are fully tax deductible and support the Mertz Library, one of the world's largest and most important resources for plant information and research.
