Thanks to our generous donors, the Friends of the Libraries, and conservator Jim Downey, we have been able to do much-needed repair work on many of the fragile, valuable, and irreplaceable books in our collections. Below are just a few of the most recent examples of the amazing work the Adopt a Book Program accomplishes. As always, there are new books available for adoption as well.
