On Tuesday, April 4, 2023, Red Deer Public Library is raising funds through a one-day Library Giving Day campaign to encourage Red Deer library lovers to make a gift to their local library.
“This campaign reminds us that libraries, small and large, serve as an important cornerstone for our communities, offering not just well-loved books, but also innovative programs to connect patrons to technology and encourage lifelong learning,” says Briana Ehnes, Events & Innovation Manager at Red Deer Public Library.
Donations from the 2022 Library Giving Day campaign went toward the Downtown Branch Toy Lending Library, allowing it to reopen after the pandemic filled with brand new toys. Funds this year will be allocated to the area of highest need, which could include collections, programs, or other new initiatives.
“Libraries are special places where everyone is welcome, regardless of age, educational level, or financial status. At a library, everyone is treated the same no matter what, and I think Red Deerians value that, and will graciously donate to support RDPL,” says Ehnes. “Strong libraries build strong communities. Please join us in spreading the word through our community and help us raise awareness and funds for Library Giving Day.”
