Buy a Book
The VBDL Buy-a-Book campaign allows you to contribute directly to the Library’s book collections and honor someone special. Download a Buy a Book form to designate your book type and location. Indicate what type of subject material best fits the honoree and the library will take care of purchasing it, all acknowledgements and provide a donation plate to each book.
For more information, contact the nearest branch or phone 269.423.4771.
The library has established an Endowment with named designations. The endowment grows year after year, and only a portion of the interest proceeds are applied to new material purchases. This ensures that the fund will forever provide monies to assist the annual book budget and grow the collection. See the list of current named funds.
