An important fundraiser is coming up for the Western Counties Regional Libraries.

The 2022 Adopt-A-Book campaign begins October 1st and runs until the end of November.

It happens every two years, as donations are used to put new books on library shelves throughout the Tri-Counties.

Public Relations Manager Ian White says library boards have to fundraise three percent of their annual budget.

“On top of that, regional library systems outside the HRM have had their budgets frozen for the next three years. Everybody is struggling with inflation of course,” says White.

White says donating money is one way to help.

“Or they can visit any one of our ten branches, choose a book from our display, and adopt a book right on the spot.”

Their goal is to raise $20,000 and adopt 750 books across the ten libraries.

This is the 14th time the campaign has been held, so far over $370,000 has been raised and nearly 17,000 books have been bought.
