Adopt-A-Book program

Fill out the Adopt-A-Book form

Donate to the Adopt-A-Book program to help buy books for the Library. If you donate over $25, you can dedicate a bookplate inside the adopted book that recognizes a loved one or honours an important event. Your donation to this program will help us keep up with the demand for new books while creating a lasting tribute.
