The Smithsonian Libraries’ Adopt-a-Book Program provides essential funding to support the conservation, acquisition and digitization of books and manuscripts held by the world’s largest museum complex and research institution. Generous private giving allows the Smithsonian Libraries to grow its collection, preserve items for future generations and make materials available to curious minds for exploration and new discoveries. Adopt-a-Book donations are tax-deductible. With your adoption of $500 or more, we invite you to participate in the Smithsonian Libraries Society, our giving program with exclusive engagement opportunities for annual donors.

If you are unable to attend, please consider adopting a book online or making a donation.
