ADOPT-A-BOOK

 

  

Adopt a Book is Back!

 Back by popular demand, ADOPT-A-BOOK continues at the Hudson Falls Free Library.  Stop by the circulation desk to look at our Wish List.

Select a book you would like to see added to our collection.

All you have to do is pay $20 for the book, and we will take care of the rest.

A Memorial Plate will be placed in the book and you have the opportunity to read the book first!

Perhaps, instead of a book, you’d like to give a year’s subscription and  ADOPT A MAGAZINE for the library.

Or maybe add a NEW MOVIE to the library’s ever-popular DVD collection!
