We all have that person who is difficult to buy for. They have everything already, or their tastes are very particular. Maybe they live far away and you’re not sure about what they might need or want.
Still, you can’t neglect great-aunt Martha at Christmas.
We recently became aware of a local program that might solve such purchasing dilemmas.
In the interest of buying local, giving a meaningful gift, and doing something that will make a difference in the world, we suggest you adopt a book for the Plumas County Library in honor of people on your Christmas list.
By donating to the Friends of the Library Adopt-a-Book program, you can ensure the library maintains a quality collection despite its reduced book budget.
Books added to the library’s collection will be read and enjoyed again and again, making your gift a long-term gift to the community.
As we’ve said before, books give readers entry to new information and ideas; they expand minds and inspire dreams. Reading is a lifelong adventure and nowhere are books more accessible — to anyone and everyone — than at the local library.
Each donation to Friends of the Library is tax deductible, which is an added gift for you.
Books may also be adopted to honor a child’s birthday or graduation, in lieu of a present at any holiday, or in memory of a loved one.
The library will spend the funds at local bookstores, keeping the dollars circulating in our economy.
You can pick up an adopt-a-book form at your local branch of Plumas County Library. On it, you can specify whom you wish to honor with your donation, and you can choose the type of book you’d like the library to purchase.
The library will send a card acknowledging your gift to the person you designate, and it will place a commemorative bookplate in the book that your donation fully purchases.
Now, that’s sure to please all the hard-to-buy-for folks on your holiday shopping list — even great-aunt Martha.
