Adopt An Author

Is there a favorite author you like but can’t ever seem to get on the waiting list early enough! Well, how about adopting the author. If you agree to purchase the book through the library you can then be the first person to read the book! Sounds like a good idea? We purchase the book at our greatly discounted price and then bill you. When the book is ready we call you so that you can be the first one to read it! Call the library for more information.
