#GivingTuesday: Support Your Library this Holiday Season

Support your Library during #GivingTuesday! The Friends and Foundation of the Arlington Public Library has joined #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide. Donate next Tuesday, November 28, to support your Library.

This year, the Friends and Foundation are focusing on the Library collection. The Arlington Public Library has a variety of resources available for the public, including books, movies, music, digital items, toys, and more. Your donation during #GivingTuesday will go towards strengthening and enhancing the Library’s collection of resources. How will you help?

Donate eBooks

Help stock our eBook and audiobook collections. We love digital content like eBooks, e-audiobooks, and digital magazines because you can add them to your smart phone and read or listen on the go. Your donations can fund our digital collections. Choose the amount you want to donate, the device you want to read it on, the type of book you want—you can even suggest a particular title, and we’ll put you first on the request list if we purchase it. Learn more and donate here.

Make a Monetary Donation

Monetary gifts support Library projects ranging from live events, purchasing items, and building the new Downtown Library. Click here to donate, or visit us at any branch to give in person.

Donate Materials

We’re always thrilled to receive donated materials at any of our locations. New hardcover titles from the past three years; audiovisual materials such as DVDs, CDs, and audiobooks; and historical items for our local history and genealogy collection may be added to our collection. Other items will be included in the Friends and Foundation booksales. Either way, your donation supports the Library. Learn more about donating items, including categories we cannot accept.
