Adopt a Book

Alvernia University offers you an opportunity to contribute to its intellectual life in a very meaningful and concrete way.  For a minimum contribution of $35, we will purchase a book in your name for the Dr. Frank A. Franco Library Learning Center.  A customized bookplate will acknowledge your gift or give you an opportunity to honor someone else's accomplishments, such as a child's graduation or birthday, a colleague's retirement, etc. If you desire, you can donate a book in memory of a deceased friend or family member.
