Naming Opportunities

You have the opportunity to name a part of the library that has a special place in your heart. Tasteful recognition will be permanently displayed as a tribute to your loved one or to your generous stewardship as outlined in our Named Recognition Policy.

Current Naming Opportunities

Learning Center

This new space is dedicated to hands on learning and play! The donor who selects to sponsor this space will have their name seen and known by many different users 78 hrs per week.

In the Learning Center you could be building electric race cars, working on an escape box, learning new technology skills, building a mini roller coaster, talking about books, playing board games, building with LEGOs, working on art projects or knitting.

Team Rooms

This space is the perfect naming rights area for the business who wants to be noticed by small groups or the donor who believes in entrepreneurship, learning and collaboration.

Team rooms provide a quiet space equipped with technology for groups of six people or fewer. Each room has a small conference table, a glass dry erase board (bring your own markers), and a 42” monitor with Microsoft Office, internet, speakers and a web cam.

Front Plaza Benches

Naming a bench on our front plaza is the perfect way to honor a loved one. These benches are frequently used by patrons wishing to enjoy the cool Kansas breeze while reading one of their finds.

Claire’s Courtyard Bricks

The purchase of a commemorative brick is a wonderful way to show your support for the services and programs of the Topeka & Shawnee County Public Library. The initial installment of Bricks coincided with the opening of Claire’s Courtyard in early 2019.

Beginning in 2021 bricks will be installed on a yearly basis.
A 4” x 8” brick with two lines of engraving is available for $75 and a larger 8” x 8” brick with up to four lines of engraving for only $125. You may order as many bricks as you like at this special price. Your purchase is 100% tax-deductible.
