Cincinnati public library selling naming rights

For $100,000 you can name the spiral staircase in Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County’s new Big Beautiful Library whatever you want. Slightly more for the rare book room or the children’s room, within reason of course. Can’t find a mention of it on their web site. [digg]

Library board vice president Charles Lindberg wants to make sure that the naming be done tastefully: , “I can see ‘The Larry Flynt Children’s Room.’ I wouldn’t be very happy with that.”

    I have been appointed the Chair of major fund raising for the Regina Public Library system. It would be of immense assitance to me and the campaign if you could refer any examples whereby Libraries had sold namimg rights of their branches and/or Main library.

    Thank you very much for your anticipated comments.
