Adopt a Book for the Library
The library is now offering its annual Adopt-a-Book program, an opportunity to “adopt” a children’s book and present it to the library’s collection. During the month of February, community members can purchase a book to honor a special person or event (Valentine’s Day, birthday, anniversary, etc.) – or to remember a loved one. Each hardback book is $14. After a book is purchased, a plaque will be inscribed and permanently placed inside. In addition, a special acknowledgement of the sponsored book can be sent to the honoree. For more information, please stop by the circulation desk.
