After a successful 2017 campaign, the Friends of the Canadian War Museum are again sponsoring the Adopt-a-Book campaign for 2018.

The titles the Canadian War Museum Military History Research Centre (MHRC) Library wishes to acquire are listed below.  Interested Friends are invited to indicate on the form the title(s) they wish to sponsor. The form should then be printed and forwarded, with a cheque, to the Friends office at 1 Vimy Place, Ottawa, ON, K1A 0M8. The cheque should be made payable to the Friends of the Canadian War Museum.

Alternatively, sponsors may leave the title selection to the Library if their choices have already been adopted.   They may also simply leave the selection of the title to the Library in the first instance.

The Library will then acquire the books and inscribe the name of the sponsor on a bookplate in each volume.

If the form is not already visible, click READ MORE below to see it.
