Adopt a Book!

The Adopt-a-book program makes it easy for you to help build the Library’s collection! Whether it is in memoriam or a tribute to a birthday, anniversary, or other special day, your donation enable us to add books that enrich lives to our collection. Adopt a book in honor of someone special-don’t forget that you are special too!

If you adopt a book, we will:

  • acknowledge your donation with a bookplate
  • honor or memorialize a loved one with a bookplate
  • You will be the first to read it, even if the book has a waiting list!
  • Receive a receipt for your tax deductible donation
