Wowbrary!

We are excited to offer you a new service called Wowbrary! Please sign up to receive a weekly newsletter about the newest books, movies, and music at the Babcock Library by clicking here.

Become a sponsor and Adopt an Author! This program allows the library to acquire all the new titles published by your chosen author.

  • When a new title becomes available, you are placed 1st in the hold queue and your name is placed on a bookplate on the title page.
  • As a sponsor, you reimburse the library for the cost of the book, which is usually 25% off the cover price!

Not only will you have the opportunity to be the VERY FIRST READER of your favorite books, but you will be helping the library with your generous gift, thus helping our budget’s bottom line.  Don’t forget that your donation is also tax deductible!

Pick up an Adopt-an-Author form at the Babcock Library circulation desk.

Don’t miss out on this great opportunity!
