Your gift will provide immediate support for the acquisition of rare materials.

Strengthen our Collection

Showcasing some of the most interesting, beautiful, and rare items recently purchased to support Hopkins research and teaching, our Adopt a Book program allows you to adopt selected items by underwriting their costs. Your adoption helps library staff acquire more research collections, preserve treasures for future generations, and make rare materials available around the world through digitization.

Items may be adopted as a unique gift to commemorate an occasion, celebrate a milestone, or honor an achievement. In addition to a tax deduction, you will receive recognition in the online library catalog. Be sure to check back often to see new selections available for adoption.
