Thanks to all of you who supported the library by attending The Friends of The Seattle Public Library booksale and/or donated to The Seattle Public Library Foundation on May 2nd, Give Big day. Your support is important and appreciated.
Donations to the library on Give Big day were not just matched by The Seattle Foundation. The Friends of The Seattle Public Library joined with six other donors to create another fund matching all charitable Big Give library gifts up to a total of $25,000. Last year during Give Big day more people donated to the library than to any other eligible non profit. Did the library once again surpass all other causes? Stay tuned to this blog for final results.
Update: The Seattle Public Library Foundation raised $128,635 from 1,044 donors. Thank you for your support!
