Under the program, library users donate pre-selected books to add to the library's collections. The library’s ‘wish list’ includes books for all ages.

It’s easy to make a gift to the library through the Holiday Book Program. The giver selects the volume to be donated from the display in the library, fills out a simple form, and brings both to the Circulation Desk with a check made out to the Acton Memorial Library Gift Fund. A bookplate will be placed in the book, with wording chosen by the donor.  Books have been given in honor of birthdays, friends or family members, or in gratitude for support or a job well done. Givers may pick up a card at the Circulation Desk to send to the person or group honored, and also reserve the book to be the first to check it out of the library.

The display for the program is located on the first floor near the DVD shelves.  The display will continue until the end of December or until all the titles are sold.
