Holiday Adopt-A-Book

17 Dec

Would you like to support the library by adopting a book?  Consider adopting a book with the Holiday Adopt-A-Book program, with books available to adopt until the end of January 2021.

  •  Find a book on the list that you’d like to adopt. (You can click on a title to read a review.)
  • Or choose a book that was published in the past year – even if it is not on the list!
  • Let us know which one you choose.
  • You pay for the book.
  •  The Librarian puts a label in the book (if you want).
     You get to check the book out first!

Due to the COVID-19 delays, shipments from our supplier have been taking longer to get here. Not all books chosen for Holiday Adoptions have arrived, so your choice may not be immediately available.
