- Planned Giving
Planned Giving is a way for you to leave a lasting mark within the MCDL system. There are many ways to remember the library in your will through a:
- Charitable Trust
- Life Income Gift
The Medina Library began in 1907 with a personal donation from farmer and businessman, Franklin Sylvester. Since then, private funds have helped MCDL achieve a level of excellence that consistently exceeds basic tax-dollar funded services.
During the MCDL library building project (2003-2008) several families and individuals made large donations to the libraries through wills, estates and stocks.
Medina County District Library is one of the largest, most recognized and valued institutions in Medina County. Make our history of literacy and community support part of your legacy through a gift from your estate.
- Corporate Support
Corporate Support and In Kind Donations
More than 3,000 people use Medina County District Libraries every day. Corporate support and sponsorships are vital to MCDL’s mission of “enriching life in the community with outstanding and innovative library services for all.” Corporate sponsorships allow your business to invest in the library and community, while promoting your business.
MCDL hosts nearly 2,000 workshops, classes and story time programs annually, from the WWII Roundtable to senior computer classes to eclectic teen events and children’s educational programs.
Here are a few ways partnerships with the community and businesses enhance MCDL's offerings:
- Provide Bookmobile service for youth attending summer reinforcement classes in reading and math. Ronald McDonald House Charities partnered with the library to provide a literacy show and a book for each student.
- First Merit Bank sponsored Signature Events at both the Medina and Highland Libraries, offsetting the costs of programming and staff time for these programs, which attracted thousands of people to the libraries.
- Borders Bookstore donated books to the Friends of MCDL to sell in their library book sales and then donate the funds back to MCDL to support the Writers Live Author Luncheon.
- Dozens of local businesses donated nearly 5,000 coupons to be used for prizes for the Summer Reading Celebration.
