Jump to the Head of the Waiting List and Help Us Put More Books on the Shelves
The Hudson Area Library offers the Adopt a Book program so that our patrons can be the first in line to read our newest books. It also gives you the chance to help support the library’s collection development.
All that you need to do to participate is pick out a book that you want the library to have or select from the list of books that are available for adoption or request a book off-list that you would like the library to own. When the book comes in, with a donation of $15, you will be the first to read it! The book will also have a commemorative bookplate honoring your donation. This program has been a very beneficial program for the library and avid readers alike. It gives patrons a chance to jump ahead of the waiting list for high demand books from authors like James Patterson or Janet Evanovich and it helps the library purchase more books than it otherwise would be able to.
Books for kids and teens are also available for adoption! Support our young readers by adopting a new release for children or teens! The commemorative bookplate can bear your name or that of a special child or teen in your life. Choose from our selection list or request another title that you would like to see on our shelves (or more importantly, in the hands of our area’s youth)!
This is a great opportunity for everyone to get involved, use your love of books to make a difference, and see exactly where your donation is going. An adopted book is a gift that can be opened and read, again and again.
