The Peabody Institute Library Foundation has limited opportunities for the 2013 Adopt-a-Window program at the library’s main building at 82 Main St., Peabody.

At the end of the year, the nameplate is moved to a permanent donor board in the library. Proceeds benefit the Peabody Institute Library. Application forms are available in the library director’s office or on the foundation’s website, www.peabodylibrary.org/about/foundation.html.
