Tribute with Books Offers Unique Opportunity to Honor, Celebrate Others

A strong library directly contributes to the university’s environment and the academic success of students and faculty. With an average of 4,600 visitors daily, the demand on the University Libraries’ collection is both rewarding and challenging. Books on a myriad of subjects are constantly in use and are periodically evaluated. Collection specialists determine what is needed to continue building a strong library at Ball State.

You can help make a great library even stronger by participating in the Tribute with Books program. Honor a special person or celebrate an occasion while strengthening the Libraries’ collection for as little as $50. Your contribution can acknowledge an accomplishment or provide a lasting tribute to a friend, family member of favorite professor.

Notification of the gift can be sent to the honoree or the honoree’s family, and a handsome bookplate will be placed inside the book’s front cover. The University Libraries will endeavor to fulfill any preference regarding subject matter for books purchased.

Those interested are invited to go online to and select the Tribute with Books link on the library’s home page or select “Giving to the Library” on the left side of the homepage. There a link to a secure site on the Ball State University Foundation’s website which links you to the Tribute with Books program. For convenience, a form is provided below asking for relevant information. Please note Account #5111 in the memo line of the check.

For more information about this or other opportunities for giving to the University Libraries, contact Dr. Arthur W. Hafner, Dean of University Libraries, at or call (765) 285-5277.
