Adopt A Book @ Burbank Public Library

Brad Korb Adopts a Book at the Burbank Public Library
Burbank Bulletin: June 2011

Whether it is reading a biography, enjoying the latest novel, or teaching someone to read, Brad Korb is a firm believer that having a local library is such an important part of a community.

When he heard about the Burbank Public Library’s Adopt A Book Program, Brad wanted to learn more and see how he could help.

The Central Library suffered from an early morning burst water pipe in early April. The damages total includes $23,000 book damages, $40,000 carpet replace-ments, $30,000 plumbing, and more.

The damaged books mainly include non-fiction titles from the travel, biography, and history collections.


Brad contacted Burbank Library Board Trustee, Mike Chapman, and made a donation to the Adopt A Book program and you can do the same!


The gift is tax-deductible and nice bookplate inscription is put inside the book’s cover denoting you and your organization’s donation.

To participate, check out the Friends of the Burbank Library on the web or contact the Central Library at 818-238-5600. With the limited funds and cutbacks being faced by our library, your help would be very much appreciated by the library and the entire community! READ MORE !

Much of what was lost is now out of print.
