This Giving Tuesday, November 28, show your love for public libraries by making a tax-deductible donation to the Sno-Isle Libraries Foundation. Giving Tuesday marks the beginning of our year-end campaign, which aims to raise $60,000 in support of Sno-Isle Libraries by December 31. With your support, our libraries will continue to thrive now and in the future. Thank you for being a committed partner in this work and investing in your community library!
"I would give it 10/5 stars if I could. Best library I've been to in terms of generosity and 'getting it' when it comes to truly impacting the community in the positive." – Alexandria N., Lynnwood Library Customer
"Great place to sit and get homework done, read, chill, or check out books to read at home. The staff is friendly, there are events that happen here and there, and plenty of books to select from." – Anonymous, Snohomish Library Customer
Dear Friends —
As you prepare for the holidays, we hope you are enjoying moments of connection with family and friends. Today we ask for your support connecting your community with vital resources and fostering lifelong learning.
Your gift last year allowed the Foundation to support programs that engaged young readers with the joy that comes from getting lost in a book. It brought families together to take advantage of the boundless information and special programs available to them at their community library. It helped add hundreds of new titles to our library collection. It enabled us to revitalize community spaces like our reimagined Darrington Library, and so much more!
We hope you’ll continue to support Sno-Isle Libraries by making a special tax-deductible donation that will be matched dollar for dollar up to $25,000 until midnight on December 31!
Libraries are not luxuries; they’re needed by residents across Island and Snohomish counties to explore new interests, search for work and update resumes, learn new skills, and gather with neighbors who also value this precious resource.
Your gift today will be MATCHED to support Sno-Isle Libraries programs like Third Graders Read Together, Summer Reading, World Language Storytimes, Sno-Isle Reads Together, and facility updates throughout the library district to ensure our libraries continue to provide free access to information and resources in spaces that are welcoming and inviting for everyone in our community.
"The staff are so friendly, super helpful and knowledgeable. Don't be shy if you have questions or need help as every staff member there is happy to assist. It's a small library, but it's clean and well cared for. Love it there!" - Shannon S., Sultan Library Customer
"Lovely library branch with an extremely helpful staff. We mostly utilize the e-book offerings rather than physical books or media, but they have a great selection. We also use the wonderful print services that are included with our free library cards. It's a small thing, but not having to buy a printer just to print the occasional return label is such a wonderful service, and it's so nice to just drop into the library on the way to the post office and complete all our errands inside our little community." – Chrissy R., Langley Library Customer
Can you hear the squeals of delight from the children’s room during Storytime? Will you support seniors by providing a comfortable, peaceful space for lifelong learning?
Your generosity empowers the Sno-Isle Libraries Foundation to support every person in the community who needs their library.
The amazing thing about your gift to the Sno-Isle Libraries Foundation is that your small act of kindness is going to open so many doors for your neighbors.
The gift you make today will help bridge the opportunity gap for students in under-resourced communities, enhance the library collection, and broaden access to information and resources for students and adults. With your support, we look forward to encouraging learning and exploration for thousands of residents in our community for years to come.
Every act of generosity counts. Help us reach our campaign goal of $60,000 by December 31 by making a tax-deductible donation of any size that is meaningful to you.
Thank you for supporting your community through a gift to the Sno-Isle Libraries Foundation and investing in your library’s bright future. Wishing you and your loved ones a very happy and healthy New Year!
Christina Kourteva, Foundation Executive Director
Luke Distelhorst, Foundation Board President
