We all know that books are expensive. Each year the San Marino Public Library adds many new books to meet the needs of readers. We wish we could do more but like everyone, we have to stay within our budget. The Adopt-A-Book Program is a unique way for you to get involved and add new books to the library collection. It’s a wonderful way to keep your library growing! Fantastic things happen when you Adopt-A-Book. You get to be the first person to read the book. A bookplate with your name will be placed in the book. Your adopted book can honor someone on a special occasion, such as a birthday or anniversary. You share the joy of reading with others who borrow the book and your gift will be opened again and again, as the years go by. If you would like to participate in the program, drop by the library and fill out an Adopt-A-Book form or call 626-300-0777 for more information.
