Hagley Library's Adopt-A-Book
Donations of $250 or more : Rare books acquisition
Books are what connect the generations of humans over thousands of years. -- Alan Lightman
Donations of $250 or higher provide the donor with the opportunity to work with a librarian to select a subject area of the collection in which to add one or more rare books, trade catalogs, or printed ephemera.
For example, here are some illustrations from rare books recently purchased for the library collection:
Image plate from Designs for Parsonage Houses, Alms Houses...with Examples of Gables, and Curious Remains of Old English Architecture by T.F. Hunt, 1822
