Library Giving Day

Library Giving Day

The first ever national Public Library Giving Day campaign recognized the important role public libraries play in transforming lives every day. We promoted this special initiative from March 10 to April 10. Donors were asked to write and tell us what inspires them to give for a chance to win $200. A random drawing of eligible entries was held, and the winning entry shared: 

“I am happy to give back to the Des Moines Public Library Foundation with a monetary donation for all the lovely things the Des Moines Public Library has given to me and my family: entertainment, inspiration, good health, knowledge and courage. Thank you for the good work you do.” - Valerie
