A project of FRIENDS OF THE ST PAUL PUBLIC LIBRARY
In this challenging economy there is no better resource for learning and entertainment than the Saint Paul Public Library.
This may be the best time to be there for your library. Several generous Friends Trustees have pledged a matching gift challenge to serve as an incentive for Give to the Max Day and our year-end campaign. Every dollar you give over and above the amount you gave last year will be matched—dollar for dollar—up to $25,000. This is a great opportunity to maximize your impact!
Thank you to the more than 3,000 individuals, foundations and businesses who contributed to The Friends last year. Your donations made it possible for us to provide more than $1 million in support to the Saint Paul Public Library for the fifteenth consecutive year.
While it continues to be your favorite place for books, movies and music, the Library has evolved into THE place for early literacy, homework help, technology training and workforce development. Beyond computers and free Internet access, the library offers classes in using technology tools. The WORKplace is the best place for entrepreneurs and small business owners to improve their chances of success, and job search assistance is available for all, through classes and drop-in sessions.
Demand is higher than ever for the services and resources offered by the library. Together, we have helped our Library provide continuous services to our community. We have made certain that the Saint Paul Public Library is there for everyone to use and enjoy. If we want the library to continue to be there, now is the time to make a gift.
The Friends’ goal is to raise $180,000 during our year-end campaign, which will provide much-needed support for Library Programs. Your gift ensures that the Library will be there for your family now and for generations to come.
Whether you are a long-time member or a first-time donor, we know that you have to make your dollars stretch further in a challenging economic climate. We appreciate that and want to assure you that we will continue to be good stewards of your generous support of the Library well into the future.
Thank you for keeping The Friends and the Saint Paul Public Library high on your list of priorities!
