Adopt-a-Book and honor someone special and help to build the Pottstown Regional Public Library's collection. Your tax-deductible donation will be used to purchase items for the library. You may choose to dedicate items to the memory of, or in the honor of someone special to you.  A dedicated book makes a great present on birthdays, holidays, anniversaries,or retirements.  A bookplate will be placed in each item with the name of the donor and/or the honoree.   If you are a member of a club or organization, adopting a book could be a group project, perhaps continuing from month-to-month or year-to-year.
