Adopt-an-Author

Are you a superfan of a particular author or book series? Do you purchase the newest books the minute they come out? If so, the Adopt-an-Author program may be for you.

This program allows book lovers to skip the hold lines for their favorite authors or series by purchasing the book for the Library. The Library buys and processes the book, and when it is ready to go out, you get called to come and claim your next adventure.

As an adopter, you’re entitled to:

  • Preferred rental on your favorite author’s newest book or series
  • The library discount price (which ranges from 35-43% off the cover price)
  • No late fees on adopted books
  • Updates on new book releases
  • Special name plaque in the front of the book
  • Tax deduction

We work our program around the adopter. For example, if the adopter loves Janet Evanovich, but only her Stephanie Plumb series, the Library can make an arrangement to only adopt that series. The Library also offers the option to adopt children and young adult literature. Give children gifts that they can share with our community!

Almost any current “Big Six” publishing authors can be adopted. The Library has a suggestion list of over 650 possible authors and series to adopt, but any authors and series may be adopted.

Book Donations

We always welcome used books and media items. The Library gratefully accepts donations of the following items in good condition:

  • Books
  • Audiobooks on CD
  • Music CDs
  • DVDs
  • Magazines

Donations may be dropped off at the Library’s main desk. If you plan to drop off more than a bag or two of items, we request that you contact the Library beforehand, so we may ready carts or have a staff member available to help unload.

Any donations not added to the Library collection will be shared with other libraries, added to the book sale, or placed out for public consumption.

For more information, please consult the Donations and Gifts Policy.
