We’re halfway through the FINAL month that you can still buy an engraved brick for the walkway at the new McAuliffe branch library, currently under construction on Water Street. Orders MUST be submitted by August 1.
We know you’ve been meaning to place your order, but you just haven’t gotten around to it yet. You really want to be part of a visible, lasting legacy at the new McAuliffe Branch Library currently under construction on Water Street by having a brick in the walkway with your engraved message.
Well, the time to order is now!
4”x8” bricks are $100, and can contain three lines of up to twenty characters of text per line, while 8”x8” bricks are $250 and can contain five lines of up to twenty characters of text per line.
These personally-engraved bricks not only are a creative and permanent way to show support for the project to build the new branch library, they can also serve to:
- Memorialize a loved one
- Celebrate someone special: spouse, children, grandparents, grandchildren, parents, pets
- Honor friends, teachers, colleagues
- Commemorate an anniversary, birthday, or other special occasion
- Inspire someone with an uplifting message for the future
Bricks can be purchased online at http://brick.fplf.org. They can also be purchased by check by printing out and mailing the order form available for download from the web site or at both the existing McAuliffe Branch Library on Nicholas Road in Saxonville and the Main Library downtown on Lexington Street.
The Framingham Public Library Foundation is a 501(c) (3) organization, and brick purchases are tax deductible as a charitable contribution.
Here are some of the unique quotes your neighbors have selected for their bricks.
“Never judge a book by its movie.” –Eagan
“With a garden and a library, you have everything you need.”
“I cannot sleep unless I am surrounded by books.” –Borges
“I cannot live without books …” –Thomas Jefferson
Have a desire to leave your creative mark on this project, with perhaps a quote from your favorite author, statesman, or yourself?
Hurry, the deadline for ordering is August 1!
