#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities, and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity
worldwide. Following Thanksgiving and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, this year’s #GivingTuesday will take place on November 27 and will kick off the
giving season by inspiring people to collaborate and give back.
As our Library welcomes over 240,000 visitors a year, hosts thousands of programs, and circulates more than 375,000 items, it’s clear it is a valued community asset.
Public funding provides us with a strong, yet limited, financial base but our private donations and grants help build CPCL into an exceptional community resource.
Please support your Library by participating in #GivingTuesday! Your donation of any amount will allow the Library to expand programming and enhance services to
improve the quality of the lives of our patrons creating a stronger community.
To participate go online to www.crownpointlibrary.org/give and donate!
