Honor with Books offers a unique way to honor a special person while making a contribution to future generations of CMU students. A gift of $100 to the Honor with Books Fund provides a personalized bookplate in a newly-purchased book in the University Library in the subject area of your choice, and grants you membership in the Friends of The Libraries​. Your gift supports future acquisitions to our collection, and your honoree will be remembered for years to come each time a student, faculty member, or visiting scholar opens the book distinguished with its dedicated bookplate. Your honoree will also be recognized in the online catalog record for the book in which they’re honored.

To request a bookplate for a book currently in the CMU Libraries’ collection, please contact Libraries’ Director of Development and Community Outreach: ander2aj​
