Adopt An Author Program

Donors may also sponsor the expansion of our collection of classic authors. The Adopt-an-Author program allows the library to acquire all of the new titles published by their chosen author. When a new title becomes available the sponsor is placed 1st in the hold queue, has her/his name placed on a donor plate on the title page, and reimburses the library for the cost of the book. This cost is usually 25-45% off cover price.

The library gets all of the new books by the following authors through the Adopt-an-Author Program. Here is the list of the authors and their sponsors.
