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 & benefit the communities we serve!

Sponsoring a library book (or movie DVD, or TV series box set), is as easy as dropping by your local library, or browsing our online wishlists of books and other items.

Pick a title, 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. In addition, we have carefully crafted Wish Lists of books (and DVDs) for folks to choose from, in a range of genres. And if your perfect book idea isn’t on the 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!
