Library Giving Day

Library Giving Day

Now through April 10, your gift to the Des Moines Public Library Foundation will be doubled!

The Des Moines Public Library is the cornerstone of our community. Within its walls, people of all ages, backgrounds and needs connect with one another, learn new things, discover new interests, get started on the path to new careers and more.

But these services require the support of generous individuals like you. That’s why we’re so excited to announce the Des Moines Public Library Foundation will participate in the first ever national Library Giving Day campaign.

Today through April 10, your gift will be DOUBLED by the Foundation - dollar-for-dollar, up to $25,000 - and go twice as far for programming and new technology for all ages.

We cannot do it without your help. When you choose to donate, we will all come together as champions of our local library! Gifts of all sizes are welcome and help to make a positive impact.


You can also Download Our Donation Form, which you can print, complete, and return along with your check.
