Grow with the Buchanan District Library

Become part of our Gift of Knowledge Tree

"Whatever the cost of libraries, the price is cheap compared to that of an ignorant nation." –Walter Cronkite

The Buchanan District Library is fortunate to be part of a generous community that has supported our continued growth over many years. Our Gift of Knowledge Tree recognizes gifts of $500 or more to the library, and features the names of many local individuals, families, and businesses who share a desire to support the library's mission in our community.

We look towards the future of our library with hope and enthusiasm, and if you feel the same, we ask you to consider growing with us on our Gift of Knowledge Tree. Each engraved leaf can bear the name of a business, be in memory or honor of a loved one, or simply display the name of the donor. We are inspired each day as we look at the names of our Buchanan friends and neighbors on the Tree, and we know we could not have accomplished what we have without them.

If you would like to be part of our Gift of Knowledge Tree, please contact library director, Meg Paulette, at or by calling 269.695.3681. 

Thank you!
