Adopt a Book

Adopt A Book

Live Oak Public Libraries’ Adopt a Book program is a wonderful way to honor or remember someone special in your life. With your donation of $25, the library will buy a book of your choice, with a book plate indicating both donor and honoree.

You can designate the kind of book. For example, if you’d like to make a lasting memorial to a cherished member of the family who loved to garden, we can buy a gardening book for the branch she used the most. Or if you want to honor the birth of child, we will buy a children’s book. And every time the book is used, your donation and the person it honors will be remembered – a wonderful way of insuring a lasting commemoration of a special person or occasion.

With each $25 contribution, a gift plate will be placed in a book in honor or memory of the person you designate. A special note will also be placed in the online catalog record.

To donate, just download or print an Adopt a Book Form and fill it out. Mail your form and your donation to Bull Street Library, 2002 Bull Street, Savannah, GA 31401.

You may also donate used books directly to the library. Just drop off your gently used books in person at your library branch.

The John V. Luck Memorial Collection is a special part of the Adopt-A-Book program, which buys current popular science books that encourage people to read and learn more about science. These books are placed in all of the library’s branches, in honor of the late John V. Luck of Savannah. Be sure to note on your Adopt-A-Book form that your donation is for this collection. If you wish to make a larger donation for either general collection development or for a special purpose, library staff will be happy to discuss your goals and priorities. Donations are always needed and welcome, and can be used to build library collections in any designated branch. Call the Live Oak Public Libraries at 912-652-3600.
