Adopt-an-Author Program


Join our Adopt an Author Program and you will get your favorite author(s) books first!

 

When a new book from your author is released, we will buy the book for YOU and notify you as soon as the book is ready to be picked up. When you come to get your book simply bring $15.00, cash or check, and the book will be your for an entire month! No waiting, you will always be the first to read your author's books. Each Adopt-an-Author book has a special plate in the book that recognizes you as the sponsor of that author. This is a wonderful way to support your favorite library while sharing your favorite author(s) with your community.

 

The Cost:

  • $15 per book

The Benefits:

  • Be the first to read your favorite author’s new books

  • You have a whole month to read it (instead of 2 or 3 weeks like normal check outs)

  • Less expensive than buying the book yourself

  • Support your local library

  • Share your favorite author(s) with the community

  • Recognition with a special bookplate inside the book

A list of authors who have already been adopted is available here.

White Birch Books Wish List

 

Every month we compile a wish list of books for you at White Birch Books. Those are books we would love to have but, unfortunately, we can't buy them all. But if you purchase a book on this list and then donate it to the Library, it is a win-win-win: You get to read a great new book, it supports White Birch Books, and the Library keeps its collection fresh and up-to-date!

 

This program was designed during the COVID-19 pandemic when access to new books was limited and patrons wanted to order books online (contact-free) but still support their local book store and their local library. This program took care of it all!

 

Go to WhiteBirchBooks.com under Shop Online and scroll down.

 

If you decide to purchase a book and plan on donating it, before or after you read it, please let me know so we can remove it from the list.
