Naming Opportunities

“When I was a child, the Pleasant Hill Library was a special place where I was able to check out and read any book I wanted without worrying about whether my family could afford it. The library was where I learned to love learning – even before I started school! Our family is happy to give back and support the new Pleasant Hill library as a cornerstone of our community and a place for current and future generations to discover and nourish their love of learning.”

-Heather Rosmarin

“Recently, we donated to the Pleasant Hill Library Foundation as an excellent way for us to give back to our community. Our donation is a contribution to ongoing community progress through the computers, technology, resources, and experiences that the new library will provide to people of all ages. We look forward to actively using and enjoying the benefits of this great addition to Pleasant Hill.”

– Steve & Kay Schramm

“Looking back on the influence libraries have had on my life, I look upon my donations as an investment in the future of Pleasant Hill’s children as well as my grandkids…jump starting their imaginations.”

– Jim Bonato
