How can you make a lasting impact on your community?
The Adopt-a-Book Program encourages literacy, supports education, and provides worthwhile recreation to children, teens and adults. It is truly the gift that gives time after time.

You Name It
The Adopt-a-Book program is a wonderful opportunity for you to share your interests with your community. Your tax deductible contribution will be used to purchase library material in the format and subject of your choice, when possible. Your name, or the name of someone you wish to honor, will appear on the bookplate in the books or items you purchase. You may also purchase a shelf or shelving section in the area you wish to support. You will be recognized with a nameplate on the shelves.

How do you Adopt?
Complete the form and return it with your contribution to any Bartow County public library. When completing your form, please specify the library location where you want to place your book.

Adopt Movies, Audio Books, E-books, and Downloadable Audiobooks!!
You may adopt movies, audio books, electronic books and other items circulated within the library system. Simply select the desired format on the form. You may also specify the department and subject matter you would like to adopt. If you choose to adopt fiction, please specify your preferred genre; otherwise we will purchase according to collection needs.  You will be notified when your adopted book is ready for the library shelves or available online and given the opportunity to be the first to enjoy your contribution!

Adopt-a-Shelf or Shelving Section
You may choose to purchase a high quality collection of books to support literacy in our community. Each adoption includes a name plaque which will be inscribed and placed in the section of the library stacks, or shelves, in the department and subject area you select.
