Library Giving Day

All Day
Library Giving Day
Other
On this year's National Library Giving Day, tell a friend or neighbor why you love Monroe County Public Library and encourage them to join you in contributing to the Friends of the Library's campaign to equip the new Southwest Branch!

Learn more and make your donation to create unlimited possibilities for all at the new Southwest Library branch: is.gd/swbranch

When you (or your friends and neighbors!) contribute to the campaign for Library Giving Day, you will receive a sticker that reads "I'm a Friend of the Library" with our signature polar bear logo, perfect to show off your library love on your laptop, water bottle, or car! Donors who contribute $150 or more will receive our extra-special thanks in the form of a branded apron, perfect for use in the Southwest Branch's new Teaching Kitchen, or putting the skills you learn there to good use in your own home! Become a sustaining library donor - you can reach that $150 level by setting up a recurring gift of just $12.50 a month.
