Each fall, the North Grenville Public Library does its biggest book order of the year, bringing in the latest and greatest books for patrons of all ages. We know how much our patrons love their tried-and-true authors, and we are always on the lookout for talented new authors.
This year, we have started a new tradition at the North Grenville Public Library, our Fall Adopt-a-Book Campaign. Following the great success of a similar campaign by our Friends of the Library group in 2021, we decided to bring it back in style. You’ll find our dazzling display at the front of the Kemptville branch, featuring a variety of genres and something for everyone.
Some books adopted so far include The Exchange: After the Firm by John Grisham, Bittlemores by Jann Arden, and Dork Diaries 15: Tales from a Not-So-Posh Paris Adventure by Rachel Renee Russell. And there are plenty more to be adopted, so come into the Library and have a look. You become the first in line to read the book you adopt when it arrives, and a “Donated by” bookplate will be put inside with your name on it. This campaign goes until October 21, 2023. See you soon at your Library!
