Adopt an Author

Be the first to read your favorite author!

Join our Adopt an Author Program!  When your adopted author publishes a new book,  we’ll order it and add it to our collection.  You sponsor that book with a donation to the library to cover the cost of the book (usually 45% off retail!) and you’ll be the first to read that new title and will be recognized with a plate in the book! This is a wonderful way to support the East Hampton Public Library.


The Cost:

Cost of the book (usually 45% off retail!)


The Benefits:

  • Be the first to read your favorite author’s new books
  • Less expensive than buying the book yourself
  • Support your local library
  • Share your favorite author(s) with the community
  • Recognition with a special bookplate inside the book


If you ever want to cancel your adopt an author sponsorship, please just let us know.
