The Charles County Public Library Adopt-a-Book program is a wonderful way for the Charles County community to engage with the library’s collections. By adopting a book, you contribute to the library’s collection, allowing us to make meaningful and important works available on our shelves.

When you adopt a book, you receive a bookplate in the adopted book and a recognition on our website, memorializing your contribution.

If you would like to adopt a book in honor of or in memory of someone, please indicate this during your adoption. All Adopt-a-Book donations are tax-deductible. Donors will receive a gift acknowledgment and tax receipt from Charles County Public Library.
