Those with a passion for written works can support the School’s Library collection through a gift to the Adopt a Book program. This unique gift, or personal tribute to celebrate a student or special person, will be acknowledged with a personalised bookplate placed inside a specially selected book in the School’s Library collection.
Each year, the School develops the collection with new books and resources, and you can help support this by making a tax-deductible gift of $75 to adopt a new book. You can choose to adopt a book to be added to one of the Library’s catalogue subjects. A bookplate will be placed inside the new book recording the adoption—you can choose to dedicate this in your own name or as a gift for someone else, or in memory of a loved one.
Some authors are perennial favourites! Because of their regular use, our most borrowed and treasured books are often the ones most in need of love and care. Your tax-deductible donation of $150 will enable us to renew borrowed books by popular authors, ensuring each generation of Grammar girls can continue to enjoy them. A bookplate will be placed inside the book recording the adoption—you can choose to dedicate this in your own name, as a gift for someone else, or in memory of a loved one.
