Adopt-a-Book Event to Benefit HPL’s Children’s Reference Section

As we strive to build a better collection for our youngest patrons, once again the library will be holding an Adopt-a-Book program.  The books available for adoption are hardcover, non-fiction titles with durable library bindings.  The cost to adopt a book varies between $15 and $25.  HPL’s Adopt-a-Book program is the perfect opportunity to honor a special occasion, family member, or friend with a commemorative bookplate.  Remember, a book is a gift that can be opened again and again…..

The Adopt-a-Book campaign kicks off during Banned Books Week, with “Band & Books!” scheduled for Sunday, September 25 at 1:00 PM.  The event takes place at the Skip Wallace Pavilion (by the pond) and will include:

  • Performance by the young and very talented  Long Tail Monkeys
  • Book Sale
  • Homemade Chili & Baked goods (donations are welcome!)
  • Quality children’s books awaiting adoption

Join us for this free and fun event sponsored by Friends of Hill Parks & Rec. and Friends of the Hill Public Library.

Support children’s literacy & intellectual freedom!  Adopt a book!
