You can be part of the effort to save the periodical section of the Mount Vernon Library by “adopting” one or more of your favorite titles. The budget to renew magazines and periodicals is at risk due to the budget cuts the city has had to impose on all departments.
You can donate the subscription cost of a magazine or multiple magazines which you enjoy to the library through the Library Foundation. It’s easy! Click the "Show Your Support" tab at the top of the page, then click "Adopt A Periodical". Scroll through the list of magazines in the list, choose one, fill out the form, and donate the cost of a year’s subscription. Be sure to include the name of the magazines you are adopting in the comment block. Your name, or the name of someone you would like to honor, will appear on a special label below the where the magazine is shelved. If you would like to donate a subscription to a magazine that is not listed, or if your choice has already been adopted, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know and one of our volunteers will contact you. Our goal is to raise $3300 which will allow the renewal of all of the 75 titles the library currently has in their collection.
