Upcoming Meetings: NOVEMBER 20 DECEMBER 16 Euclid Public Library Foundation Celebrates #GivingTuesday This #GivingTuesday, the Euclid Public Library Foundation will celebrate giving by hosting a special social media campaign to bring awareness to all the many ways the Euclid Public Library supports our community. #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. Because of library champions like you, Euclid Public Library continues to transform lives through funding graciously donated to the Euclid Public Library Foundation. This is achieved through annual campaigns to increase awareness and raise monetary support for programming and services. In total, your year- end gifts have raised more than $16,000 in funding for programs, technology, author visits, and much more on behalf of the library since the campaign’s launch in 2016. Celebrate #GivingTuesday this year by considering a tax-deductible gift to the Foundation. To donate online, please visit euclidpubliclibraryfoundation.org on Tuesday, November 27.
