April 4, 2023, is the annual Library Giving Day. On this day, library supporters across North America come together in an incredible movement to empower their community libraries. Sno-Isle Libraries Foundation joins more than 420 library systems across the country in celebrating this special day of giving back to our public libraries.
We hope that you’ll join the movement and help us raise $25,000 in support of Sno-Isle Libraries. In turn, the Foundation will invest your gift in our libraries' incredible programs and services. Can we count on your support this Library Giving Day?
"Staff are great, book selection is amazing. I mostly use the e-book offerings for my Kindle, and they have all the new releases. The physical location is great and always clean and feels like a safe place for us and the kids. Lots of books in foreign languages as well. My kids love coming here. They also have a lot of online webinars and book readings as well."

Why give to the Sno-Isle Libraries Foundation?
As the philanthropic arm of the library system, the Sno-Isle Libraries Foundation uses private donations to fund innovative and equitable programs throughout Sno-Isle Libraries District's 23 libraries in Snohomish and Island Counties. We invest each and every donated dollar back into our libraries by funding key building improvements and inspiring educational programs.
Programs we support include capital renovations, such as the recently installed new roof of the Arlington Library, Express Lockers at the Monroe and Camano Island Libraries, Sno-Isle Libraries' collection, early literacy programs like Third Graders Read Together and Summer Reading, the Trudy Sundberg Lecture Series, the Mariner and Lakewood/Smokey Point demonstration libraries, and so much more!
These and many other important initiatives would not be possible without the generosity of dedicated individuals and community and business partners like you. Thank you for supporting Sno-Isle Libraries Foundation's mission to expand the reach of library services, help create inspiring community spaces, and ensure the bright future of our libraries.
