What is Adopt-A-Book?

Adopt-A-Book is an annual fundraiser organized by the Township of Russell Public Library. Patrons and the public are invited to visit the Russell and Embrun branches (or browse virtually) and choose from the large selection of new releases available for adoption between October 15th to November 19th 2022.

Thank you to all who donated during our annual Adopt-A-Book campaign. With your help, the Township of Russell Public Library raised $4,886! It’s donations like yours which help support the Library and everything it has to offer to our community.
