Sponsor a Subscription TODAY!

Sponsoring a magazine is a wonderful way to help the library save money. All you have to do is select a magazine from the magazine list and pay for a one year subscription. A name plate will be placed on the shelf below the magazine to designate your donation. You will have the first opportunity to have the magazines when they are released for the book sale. Each year, a reminder will be sent to you if you would like to sponsor it again.

Here are the titles that are still available for sponsorship.  Contact the library for pricing details.
