Adopt A Book

When you adopt a book, you are making a donation to the Round Top Festival Institute Bybee Library to help defray the cost of the book. A bookplate is placed
in the book with your name and any designation you specify. The book is then catalogued and shelved. The books below are available for adoption on a first-come
first-served basis. Books are removed as they are adopted. However, if by chance two people adopt the same book, staff will choose a book of equal value and
notify the second donor. The second donor is determined based upon the timestamp of their donation.
