Buy A Tile

We invite you to participate in making the Gum Spring Library your own by purchasing a tile to be permanently displayed! Here are some sample tiles:


These hand-crafted donor tiles will celebrate the wildlife in the wetlands and habitat surrounding the Gum Spring Library. They will be designed by Loudoun County's award-winning ceramicist Joan Gardiner, and will be located throughout the library.

Show your commitment to the Gum Spring Library by purchasing a tile! Profits from the sale will provide important enhancements to the Gum Spring Library, such as added resources and programs for families, teens, seniors and those with special needs.

Tiles come in a variety of sizes for all budgets, and the name of the donor or honoree can be placed on your tile along with the images of wildlife. Those purchasing the larger tiles are able to select a preferred animal from a pre-determined list. Although each tile has a maximum number of characters for the name, keep in mind that more characters result in the use of a smaller font.

Here are the specifics, and how to order via PayPal, debit or credit card. **After placing your order, you will receive an email within a couple of days that will ask you to enter the name exactly how you want it to appear on your tile. Please watch for your email!**
