THANK YOU! You made Library Giving Day a massive success!

You blew us away with your fantastic support for Library Giving Day this month!

You rallied to raise more than $219,000 for this inaugural online fundraising event, exceeding our goal! Your gifts help guarantee that the community will continue to enjoy educational and culturally enriching programs, as well as continually updated books and materials.

What started as an idea right here at The Seattle Public Library Foundation grew into a movement of 190 library systems across North America, just in its first year! These libraries represented 39 U.S. states and four Canadian provinces.

We are thrilled with the turnout of not just donors, but the other libraries who participated, and hope this effort will continue to grow in coming years and amplify libraries’ profile among the public.
