Adopt a book/Support a Smithsonian Library
Some of our art libraries have listed the books they need on Amazon.com. You might want to see their wish lists. Check back for more additions soon. We will be adding subjects over the next few months.
When you participate in the Adopt-A-Book program, you significantly increase the Libraries' ability to purchase new books.
All Smithsonian libraries in 19 museums and 9 research institutes are available for public use, nearly 10,000 visitors a year come to Washington DC, New York City and Panama to do research in the library. Millions more see our books through gallery exhibitions and online. The important books and manuscripts in the Smithsonian Libraries collections form an invaluable resource for research in subjects ranging from art to zoology.
Your Adopt-a-Book donation presents the Libraries with an abundance of possibilities. Be a part of history, make a donation today.
