Sponsor an author or a magazine

Can't wait to read your favorite author's next book? If you sponsor this author, you get to be the first to check out the author's newest book.

How do you sponsor an author? Stop by or call the Library and tell a librarian you want to sponsor an author. If the author is not currently sponsored, we'll sign you up. We will order the author's next book as part of our regular order. When the book comes in, we will process it and put a gift bookplate with your name in the front of the book. We'll notify you the book is in - you get to read it first and you pay the discounted library rate!

Remember: you can sponsor as many authors as you like. Stop by and talk with a librarian soon.

Sponsoring Magazines

The library offers over 70 magazines for patrons' use; each issue is available to take home. Perhaps you'd like to sponsor a yearly subscription to one. Do you have a favorite among the currently offered magazines? The annual subscriptions generally range from between $10 and $20.

How do you sponsor a specific magazine? Stop by or call the Library and tell us which title you'd like to sponsor. You will receive recognition for your gift as well as the option of checking out each new edition first, along with a bill for the annual cost of the subscription.

On behalf of all Brookline readers, thank you for your generosity and support!
