Friends of the Fairfield Public Library to participate in Giving Day

The Friends of the Fairfield Public Library are once again participating in Fairfield County’s Giving Day on March 1, 2018. Hosted by Fairfield County’s Community Foundation, Giving Day inspires and empowers our region to raise as much money as possible for local nonprofit organizations in just 24 hours through online donations.

From midnight to 11:59 p.m. on March 1, donors can go online at fcgives.org/designee/friends-of-the-fairfield-public-library to support the Friends and the Fairfield Public Library. The minimum donation is $10 and there is no maximum. Whether you give $10 or $1,000, your donation will make a difference.

Danielle Sharp, director of development for the Friends, said, “This will be our fourth year participating in the event, with the amount of our total donations rising every year. We are hoping to break last year’s record of $3,125, while at the same time raising awareness about who the Friends are and what we do.”

In existence since 2003, The Friends of the Fairfield Public Library is a non-profit organization dedicated to enhancing the partnership between the Fairfield Public Library and the community, and advocating for quality library service for all of the people of the town of Fairfield. Over the past fourteen years The Friends have provided more than $300,000 to the Library to support special programs, services and resources not included in the operating budget, including a commitment to fund the Library’s museum pass program with $10,000 a year for 10 years.

The Friends sponsor the Fairfield Public Library’s Soundwaves Concert Series and manage the Bruce S. Kershner Art Gallery. They also oversee the ongoing sale of gently used books and DVD’s in The Twice REaD Room at the Main Library, and offer a Books as Gifts program which allows people to honor or remember a loved one with a bookplate placed in a new book to be added to the Library’s collection.
