ADOPT-A-BOOK CAMPAIGN 2020

The books adopted during this campaign will help to ensure that the Military History Research Centre’s library continues to be the best collection of Canadian military history titles in the world.   These books are the newest literature in the field, as well as books that help to fill in gaps in the library’s subject matter to ensure a comprehensive look at the subject.   This year several titles have been chosen with inter-war and modern themes, as these are becoming more heavily studied areas.   There are also titles on Canada’s relations with other countries, studies on foreign military powers, and new views on military theory.

The titles the MHRC library wishes to acquire are listed below.   You are invited to indicate on the form below the title(s) you wish to sponsor.   The form should then be forwarded to the Friends office with a cheque.   An updated list of titles still available for adoption can be viewed on the Friends web site.   You may of course leave the selection of a title or titles to the campaign coordinator.   In the event that a title has already been adopted, the coordinator will assign an alternate title of equal value.

The library will then acquire the book(s) and inscribe the name of the sponsor on a bookplate in each volume.   You will receive a tax receipt and a letter of thanks in due course.

You may also, if you wish, adopt a book or books on line by proceeding to the Friends website.   Here you should click on the ‘donate now’ button, followed by ‘Canada Helps.’   Follow the steps outlined, entering the required information, and in the ‘message box’ insert ‘Adopt-a-Book’ together with the listed number(s) and title(s) you wish to sponsor.   If you desire, there is also a further box in which you may enter an ‘in memoriam’ dedication.
