Adopt an Author Program

Be first in line to read your favorite author’s new book
and help your library at the same time.

Here’s how it works: you agree to purchase one copy of each new book published by your favorite author for a one-year, renewable period at a discounted rate. In turn, you will be able to borrow the book first, for a special four-week loan period as soon as the book is available.

You will be notified of the book’s discounted cost at time of library’s purchase. Pay for the book when you check it out.

Once you return the book, it becomes part of our regular circulating collection. If you choose, you may be identified as the donor on a book plate inside the book. The library will post a list of adopted authors, so that you can check to see if your author is free to adopt.
