Friends #GivingTuesday 2020

Help the Friends on GivingTuesday!

The Friends of the New Glarus Public Library are participating in the Giving Tuesday Campaign (#GivingTuesday) in 2020!

The mini book sales at Farmers Market went well, but additional funds are needed for library programs. The Friends also want to donate towards the furniture for the teen and children's areas in the new library. Added bonus - the furniture funds will count toward the Capital Campaign's "Love of Community" matching grant, doubling your dollars!

So, we’re setting a goal of $35,000 to raise by #GivingTuesday, December 1.

If you haven’t heard of #GivingTuesday, here is a link Basically, it is one day on social media when people all over the world contribute to various causes by sharing their time, talents, platforms and funds. The Friends of the New Glarus Public Library will be on social media that day convincing donors to pick us.

Please help us out! Here are some ways to get involved:

Share your story.

Our #GivingTuesday campaign is all about sharing our library and/or community experiences. Do you have a story to share? It doesn’t have to be long. It can be a quote, a learning experience, or a funny situation – variety is good. If it might spark conversation or get a response, it could help us reach people outside of our community who are looking to donate to a good cause. Email for more information, or just post on Facebook and tag the Friends page!

Spread the word.

Email your friends and family. Let them know this is happening.

Like, Share and Comment on our #GivingTuesday Facebook posts! Follow the Friends page or the Library page for updates.


Please consider chipping in. You don't have to wait until December 1st if you're feeling in the giving mood right now!
