Granting Wishes

Make Wishes Come True for the Southwest Harbor Public Library!


Granting Wishes Bookplate

Granting Wishes is an exciting way to contribute to our Children’s collection! Patron and friends are invited to donate books to commemorate important events in their lives such as

  • a child’s birth or birthday
  • special event
  • in memory of loved ones, both human and animal
  • or just to end a great summer!

I love the thought of a child opening a picture book at the library and seeing it was given on his fourth birthday! These individual connections really matter to our young readers. Hundreds of books have been donated through the program, and for those donors, our collection has become very personal. We maintain a fabulous collection for our children, reflecting the love and pride of our small community.


What I would love to do is talk with you in person, by phone, or email. Together we can choose a perfect book that resonates for you and shares the sentiments of your gift. Each book is given a beautiful blue and yellow gift plate, sparkling with the fun of the program.

I look forward to granting these wishes with you,

Susan Plimpton
