Frequently Asked Questions


What is a Book Buddy?

  • A Book Buddy is a patron with a favorite author or series, and commits to purchasing for the library the next book released (at our deeply discounted prices of course.) When the book arrives at the library, the Book Buddy has first dibs on their copy, and a bookplate will be applied to recognize the contribution they have made to the library.
