Gift-a-Book Campaign This holiday season, give the gift of reading!

Help our library continue to give the gift of reading this holiday season! A great way to give a gift to your friends and family, and benefit the communities we serve!

Sponsoring a library book (or movie DVD, or TV series box set) is easy!

Step 1: Drop by your local library, or browse our online Wish Lists of books and other items.

Step 2: Choose a book, movie, or box set - your gift for someone special!

We have great gift ideas for everyone on your list!
Pick from our Wish Lists, or make suggestions for purchases not featured on our lists. We also gratefully welcome general donations toward the collections budget.

Step 3: Make your donation, and the library will purchase your chosen book!

At each library location, there will be a small display of books available for you to choose. We also have carefully crafted Wish Lists of books and other materials for folks to choose from, in a wide range of genres. And if your perfect gift idea isn’t on our Wish List, please let us know - we happily take suggestions!

Gift-A-Book 2017There are tons of great benefits when sponsoring a Gift-A-Book, including:

  • You will receive an income tax slip for the amount of donation given.
  • You can choose to be first in line to read the book, or watch the movie or TV series box set.
  • A personalized bookplate is placed on the sponsored item, recognizing your gift or the person you wish to gift the item to.
  • A gift card for you to use as a stocking stuffer, to let your lucky booklover (or movie fan) know that you have sponsored a library item for them. Click here to preview the gift card!
