Dedicate a Book to Someone You Love

Print a name and personalized message inside a Boston Public Library circulating book.

Bookplate Requests for Valentine’s Day must be made by February 10. 

Here at the Boston Public Library Fund, we are offering the opportunity for you to give the gift of reading and wonder while supporting innovation at the BPL.

With a donation of $50 or more, we will print a dedication and personalized message inside a book circulating in the Boston Public Library.

How it works

  1. Complete your bookplate dedication online
  2. Make a donation of at least $50
  3. After making your gift, we will create a bookplate to insert into a circulating book and notify the recipient via email of your gift within 72 business hours. 

Please note: The email notification to the recipient is not automatic. We do not track which books the bookplates are placed in, or accommodate requests for specific titles. Read the full Terms and Conditions.
