Black Road Branch “Buy-a-Brick” Program

The Joliet Public Library is pleased to offer the “Buy-a-Brick” program where you can purchase a personalized brick to be placed in the garden patio of the Black Road Branch. Commemorate someone or something special in your life. Bricks are available in two sizes for inscribing: 4”x 8“ for $50 and 8”x 8” for $100. If you wish to order multiple bricks, please type the information on an additional sheet and attach to this order.

Brick Inscription Guidelines:

Inscriptions may contain up to 13 characters per line, including spaces and punctuation.

Use only capital letters – Use numbers (0-9)

Use of symbols will be limited to: ampersand (&), apostrophe (‘), comma (,), dash or hyphen (-), exclamation point (!), forward slash (/), numeric (#), plus (+), quotes (“ ”). 

Inscriptions will communicate non-commercial messages only. Company names may be used, but company phone numbers, slogans, sales pitches and logos will not be permitted.

Discriminatory or inappropriate messages that refer to an individual’s or group’s sex, race, color, religious creed, national origin, age or physical handicap will not be permitted. 

The Joliet Public Library reserves the right to deny any brick purchase application that it determines to be inappropriate by virtue of the stated or implied message. Purchasers shall have no control over the location, design, material appearance, construction, manufacture, installation, maintenance or repair of the bricks.

Bricks ordered together will be placed together whenever possible. Orders submitted separately will not be placed together. The Joliet Public Library reserves the right to edit text and determine the location of the bricks.
