Adopt an Author

Become a sponsor and Adopt an Author! This program allows the library to acquire all the new titles published by your chosen author. When a new title becomes available, you are placed 1st in the hold queue and your name is placed on a bookplate on the title page.


As a sponsor, you reimburse the library for the cost of the book, which is usually 25-45% off the cover price!


Not only will you have the opportunity to be the VERY FIRST READER of your favorite books, but you will be helping the library with your generous gift, thus helping our budget’s bottom line. Don’t forget that your donation is also tax deductible!


Library revenues continue to go down substantially while the cost of providing services to our patrons keep rising. We are constantly looking for creative ways to continue our high level of service while generating some revenue to offset the costs. This type of program is just one way we can do this.


Pick up the Adopt-an-Author form at the Aldrich Public Library circulation desk, or download and either email it to or drop it off at the circulation desk.


Don't miss out on this great opportunity!
