Wednesday, April 10 is a great day to support The Seattle Public Library by making a donation during the inaugural Library Giving Day campaign.

The Seattle Public Library Foundation is leading a coalition of over 150 libraries across the country joining forces to raise funds on Library Giving Day.

This campaign reminds us that libraries, small and large, serve as a cornerstone for our communities. Beyond well-loved books, many libraries offer innovative programs that promote lifelong learning, connect patrons to technology, and advance knowledge.

"It’s exciting to see our state libraries working together through this giving campaign, as I’m sure it will help raise visibility for our libraries across the state," said Washington State Librarian Cindy Aden.

The Seattle Public Library Foundation is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) established in 1980 that helps The Seattle Public Library build its collection and resources, offer programs for patrons of all ages and better serve the needs of our community.

All gifts will be doubled, up to $45,000, through a generous match this year. Gifts to The Seattle Public Library Foundation can be made using the link:
