Holiday Adopt a Books are still available!  Looking for a unique present for that someone special?  Adopt a book at the library! Here’s how it works: Select a book from those available or suggest a book to the librarian.  After you pay the library for the book we’ll put a special adoption label in and check the book out to your special someone.  When the person has read the book, return it for others to enjoy – both the book and your generosity.  Books may be adopted for people, pets, entities, the library, almost anyone.
