Preston Library Legacy

Preston Library Legacy books are promoted by the Preston Library to honor our students and families, as well as, build our collection with new and exciting books!  With a $25 donation to the Library, a book is purchased for our permanent collection and is inscribed with your student’s name.  Your student will be presented with this book and their picture will be displayed in the Library!  They will then get to check the book out for 2 weeks.


Here are some suggestions for opportunities to honor your student with a Preston Library Legacy book:

  • Birthdays
  • Accomplishments
  • New member of the family
  • Special family events


Preston Library Legacy books are a great way to show your student the value that you place on reading, as well as helping to grow our collection.  If interested please fill out this form.


Thank you for your support!
