What is Library Giving Day?

Wednesday, April 7 is Library Giving Day, an event that gives library lovers like you a chance to elevate and support your local Union County public library - Elgin Public Library, Cove Public Library, Cook Memorial Library, North Powder City Library, and Union Carnegie Public Library. When faced with extraordinary circumstances in 2020, the mission of each of the County's libraries remained steadfast and strong. Union County's Public Libraries are a constant, and that's thanks to the caring support of our generous community members. Your gift will help keep Libraries of Union County Foundation strong and more prepared to adapt to the changing times and growing need for the public libraries' many beloved programs and services. 

Union County's five public libraries are the cornerstone of their communities, offering books, fun and informative programs for all ages, and many resources for knowledge, discovery, and enrichment.

Library Giving Day for Libraries of Union County Foundation
libraries of union county logoWhen we at Libraries of Union County Foundation were first preparing for this year’s campaign, we couldn’t have known just how important this special day of giving would be for our libraries this year in light of the ongoing pandemic. In these unprecedented times, our local libraries are a much needed constant. And that, in part, is thanks to the caring support of generous patrons in our communities.

Each library in Union County has responded to the pandemic in their own way, based on staffing and budget limitations, to their patrons' desire to continue to enrich their minds and nurture their curiosity. They’ve helped those staying at home navigate the digital library landscape and have provided valuable distance learning resources to people of all ages in their communities.

On Library Giving Day, we can all come together as champions of our local libraries. Thank you for helping us stay strong. We’re so grateful for your support.
