Adopt-a-Book Virtual Salons

Get up close and personal with Smithsonian Libraries and Archives’ collections and experts through our new series of Adopt-a-Book Salons!

Our Adopt-a-Book program provides essential funding to support conservation, acquisition, and digitization of our materials while allowing you to commemorate an occasion, celebrate a milestone, or leave a legacy for a loved one. Each year, we invite guests to our Adopt-a-Book Evening to explore books available for adoption and learn why these items are crucial for researchers today.

This year, we’ve taken our annual event online and will be hosting a series of four intimate salons where you’ll have the opportunity to interact with our librarians, archivists, and conservators. You’re invited to join us for each event to see books and materials from all 21 of our library branches and the Archives!
