Skip to content 2020 Discover Your Library Luncheon canceled – The Seattle Public Library Foundation

We are committed to the health and safety of our supporters. We also want to do our part to contain the spread of COVID-19 and protect those at the highest risk.

Given the recommendations of Public Health – Seattle & King County – and with input from our Board, event committee, and wonderful sponsors – we have canceled the 2020 Discover Your Library Luncheon that was scheduled to take place March 17.

But you still have an opportunity to give. Thanks to our fantastic challenge match sponsors, all online gifts of $250 or more will be doubled until we hit $70,000. You can still help us reach our goal of $450,000. Give today!

We thank our incredible sponsors for their leadership in supporting The Seattle Public Library and its services. We also thank each of you for your commitment to thriving libraries.

You’re welcome to enjoy great moments from last year’s event to serve as inspiration! Last year, we met 9-year-old West Seattle resident Halima, who detailed how she became a star student with aspirations to become a doctor by using Homework Help at the High Point Branch. Watch her story here. During the live program, keynote speaker Franklin, 18, recounted how he moved to Seattle from Nigeria and learned English and developed a passion for computer science at the Library. Watch Franklin’s powerful speech!
