Adopt-A-Book form

Our Adopt-A-Book donation program provides donors with an easy way to move to the TOP of the request queue for new, best sellers.  This is a win-win for everyone!  You purchase the book at our reduced cost, and your hold request moves up to the top of the request queue.  Often, the book is available the day it is released for publication.  If it is, the Library will have your selected title ready and waiting for you on the release date!

To donate, look through our Adopt-A-Book want listselect a title, print the Adopt a Book form, and turn in both the form and your donation to any staff member at the Library.

Cash or checks should be made payable to the “Culpeper County Library". Your adoption is tax deductible!

Memorial Books

The Library accepts cash gifts for the purchase of memorial or tribute materials.  Materials are selected by the donor with the concurrence of the Director.

Selections are generally based on the wishes of the donor, the interests of the deceased or honoree, and the needs of the library. 

Special book plates are affixed to these gifts.

Volunteer!!  Do you want to give back to your community?  Help the Culpeper County Library serve our community by volunteering your time to support the services and programs of the Culpeper County Library.

Many opportunites are available for individuals 13 years of age and over.

Volunteering is a self-rewarding experience that allows individuals to give of their time while making a difference in someone else's life. Training is provided for all opportunities.

Don't have time in your busy schedule for ongoing volunteer committments? No problem!  We have a few volunteer opportunities that only require short-term committments, such as annual or seasonal projects.  

Contact Kathy Clevenger, our Volunteer Coordinator, at 540-825-8691 or at kclevenger@cclva.org if you are interested in knowing more about our volunteer positions.

Join the Friends of the Culpeper County Library

The Friends of the Culpeper County Library is a non-profit volunteer organization dedicated to supporting the library. Money raised by the Friends is used to sponsor programs and cultural opportunities that would otherwise go unfunded.
