We have the perfect gift for book lovers on your holiday list. Purchase a book to adopt and add to the library’s collection as a great way to memorialize a departed loved one or honor a cherished family member, friend, or event. You choose the item to be donated and we’ll place a bookplate in it to recognize your donation.

Once again, The Bookman is partnering with the library in this holiday giving program. Browse through the special display at The Bookman. Purchase a book from the display and the store will deliver your purchase to the library.

In addition, the library maintains an online wishlist of books, DVDs, and music CDs at Amazon.com for children and adults. Access the Amazon wishlist through the library’s home page. This is a fast and easy method to donate to Loutit District Library and here are the instructions:

  • Click here for the Wish List.
  • Select an item(s) from the options, place in your cart and check out.
  • If you do not have an Amazon account, you will be prompted to create one at this point.
  • Use Loutit District Library as the mailing address.
  • IMPORTANT: Check the box for “Include a free personalized gift message” and enter your name and address to receive a receipt for tax purposes and to have your name placed on the book plate.  To have a book plate placed in honor of or in memory of a loved one, add “In honor of X” or “In memory of X” here also. Due to space limitations, extra wording cannot be added to the book plate.

Scroll to the bottom of our Volunteer & Support page for other ways to donate to the library.
