Your generous contributions enable us to continue our mission of providing support to the Huntington Beach Public Library's development of vital programs and services that enrich our community.
Money raised by the Friends through memberships, donations, the Friends Gift Shop, Used Books Store and fundraising events provide approximately $250,000 yearly for the Huntington Beach Public Library. Corporate donations and tiered sponsorship opportunities are available.
The Adopt-A-Book program allows you to commemorate a special person, date or event by placing a personalized book in the library's collection. For a donation of $25 or more, the library will help you identify an appropriate book, insert a bookplate carrying your message of tribute, and send an acknowledgement of your generosity to the appropriate party.
Imagine a handsome book about art or gardening, about history or poetry, that bears the name of a special person or event in your life. With Adopt-A-Book, book lovers will enjoy your contribution and see your commemoration for years to come.
To Adopt-A-Book, simply click below to print the form, mail it in or drop it off at any HBPL library. For further information, please call (714) 375-5114.
