SPLF leads international Library Giving Day

The Seattle Public Library Foundation is leading an international movement to raise the profile of local libraries with the April 10 Library Giving Day.

Sixty-eight library systems in the United States and Canada, including 20 in Washington state alone, are working to raise funds to support our libraries.

The Seattle Public Library Foundation supports the purchase of about one in every four books at The Seattle Public Library. It also funds programs such as Summer of Learning, Raising a Reader, Story Time and Library to Business – all with a focus on equity.

Help spread the word! Like the Library Giving Day Facebook page and invite your friends to join. Share, in person and on social media, how the Library helps you in your daily life and why you give. Then, on April 10, make a gift to The Seattle Public Library Foundation.

Each gift up to $50,000 will be matched, dollar-for-dollar, until our match pool is exhausted. There is truly no better time to give!

Use the hashtag #LibraryGivingDay on social media.
