In addition to our rare books for adoption you can adopt a book from our general collections. These materials are vital resources for the many students, scholars, educators, clinicians and members of the general public who use our collections. Our Curator of Rare Books and Manuscripts will select a book on your behalf.


Curator's Choice adoption price: $150.00

If you would like to adopt a book in a particular subject area please contact us by calling the Library office at 212-822-7315 or emailing
