2017 Program

After a successful 2016 campaign, Friends are again sponsoring the Adopt-a-Book campaign for 2017.

The titles the MHRC Library wishes to acquire are listed below.   Interested Friends are invited to indicate on the form below the title they wish to sponsor, together with a second and third choice.   The form should then be forwarded to the Friends office with a cheque.

Alternatively, sponsors may leave the title selection to the Library if their first, second and third 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.

It is requested that Friends be cognizant of the desire of other Friends to adopt titles, and thus to restrict their initial adoption to no more than one or two titles.   If all titles are not taken up, then the remaining titles to be adopted will be published in the next edition of The Torch.
