Adopt a Book 2014

Adopt-a-Book 2014

The Society’s 7th Annual Adopt-a-Book event, which raises funds for library acquisitions, will take place on Tuesday, May 6, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. During the evening, you will have the opportunity to view rare books, pamphlets, newspapers, prints, and manuscripts that have been recently acquired by AAS.

Adopt an item in your name or in memory/in honor of a special person. Your generous contribution will be permanently recorded on a special bookplate and in AAS’s online library catalog.

Entrance to the event is FREE if you have pre-adopted from the catalog.

You can adopt online, or if you have questions contact Lauren Hewes at or (508) 471-2124.

To adopt in person, come to Antiquarian Hall on May 6th (6:00-8:00 pm). Hear what library curators are buying and why. Browse the exhibition of new acquisitions and examine exclusive items which will be available for adoption the night of the event only. Otherwise, $10 entrance fee on the night of May 6, 2014.

We are grateful to the following vendors for their generous donation for your enjoyment on May 6:
