Did you consider your fines your gift to the Library?

You can continue supporting the Library with a gift to the Foundation.

Many Library fans have happily paid their late fines while simply considering it a donation to the Library. After all, you appreciate the robust collection, the free programs, and the helpful staff. That’s worth the small price you may have paid for your occasional fines and fees.

While the 2019 Library Levy replaces fine revenue, The Seattle Public Library Foundation still offers you the chance to make your Library stronger. Last year, the Foundation supported the purchase of more than 1 in 4 books; made possible 40 popular programs like Homework Help, Adult Education Tutoring, and Story Times; and supported facility upgrades to branches like Lake City and South Park. In total, the Foundation provided more than $5 million in financial and in-kind support to the Library.

If you want to continue showing the Library you care, please consider becoming a Page Turner and joining our monthly giving club. Donations can be made starting at $5 per month. Or make a one-time gift by donating here.

It’s a double bonus! You’ll never have a late fee again AND you’ll be doing your part to strengthen your community’s greatest treasure – a vibrant public library!
