Description: The "Adopt-a-Book" Program is an annual and very successful project which contributes approximately $2,000 a year for new book acquisitions. Friends’ sponsored campaigns over the past 11 years have provided more than 500 new titles to the Hartland Molson Library of the War Museum's Military History Research Centre (MHRC).
Each year the MHRC provides a list of titles of the books it would like to acquire. This information is made known to the individual Friends, largely through The Torch. Interested members provide their contributions to the Friends and designate the title of the book(s) they wish to sponsor. As funding is received, the Friends notify the MHRC of which books have been sponsored and each adopted book is inscribed with the name of the sponsor.
Cost (Annual/Total): $2,000/year
Volunteer Opportunities: This project is entirely funded by members who ‘adopt’ a book by contributing funds for specific books on the MHRC annual list.
