Richards Library Fundraiser: “That’s My Brick Legacy Project”

The Richards Library is continuing its “That’s My Brick Legacy Project” fundraising program.  The library has partnered with “That’s My Brick”, a company that produces decorative/ commemorative 4″ x 8″ bricks, to create a Legacy Platform/Walkway around the flagpole that stands in front of The Richards Library.  

Any person who wishes to purchase one of these bricks can have them inscribed with a person’s name, a family name, in memoriam of a loved one or even a favorite family pet.  They can also have a graphic included as part of the inscription.  The bricks cost $50 apiece, graphic included or not, and would make great gifts for birthdays, holidays, anniversaries, or graduations.  Additionally, if a business or organization would like to have a specific logo inscribed on the brick, the company will need a photo-ready, black and white copy of the logo, and they will need to fill out a disclaimer located on the on-line order form.  There is an added $15 cost for this service.  

Go to the library’s web page,, then go to the Public Resources tab, and proceed to the bottom of the page.  There you will find a link to the on-line order form and a link to all the FREE graphics that you can have put on the bricks.  You may also go to: and order there. 

If you do not wish to order on-line, the library has paper forms you may use to order.  There is no deadline as this will be an on-going fundraiser for the library.  If there are any questions, please do not hesitate to call the library at 518-623-3011.
