Adopt-a-Book Program


In April 2009 the Friends inaugurated an adopt-a-book program. This system allows members of the Friends, and friends who are not members, to adopt a book in Special Collections that is in critical need of repair.  The costs usually range from $150 to $800 per book.  Adopting patrons may make a partial donation toward a particular book, too.  Recognition is given to those who donate toward specific books: notice in the Friends publications and a special book plate is placed in the adopted book.


The following books are in need of adoption:
