#LibraryGivingDay is a one-day fundraising event with the goal of encouraging people who depend on and enjoy public libraries to donate to their individual library system. In turn, that support will go toward the incredible programs, services and materials provided by local libraries across the country! The most exciting part? Our Board of Trustees has pledged to match up to $50,000 in gifts, so your donations will go even farther. We have a fun day of events to celebrate your support!
