Support the Library on Arizona Gives Day, March 20
Sedona Public Library is one of approximately
800 nonprofit organizations participating in Arizona Gives Day, an online
fundraising initiative, scheduled to take place on Wednesday, March
20. Arizona Gives Day is a 24-hour online fundraiser aimed at bringing
together communities across the state, to raise awareness and financial
support for a variety of nonprofit organizations throughout Arizona.
Arizonans are encouraged to help make a difference by investing in the
nonprofit of their choice.
If you care about library services in the
Sedona area, then please show us your support on March 20. By donating
to Sedona Public Library on Arizona Gives Day, you help sustain this
amazing organization, which offers services to 12,000 library cardholders
in Sedona and the Village of Oak Creek, as well as visitors to our community.
On Arizona Gives Day, every donation and donor
we get will make a real difference, right here in our community.
Help spread the excitement. Tell your friends and family why you think
they should help us with their donation.
Starting at midnight on March 20 and continuing
until 11:59 p.m., supporters of the Library can go on to www.AZgives.org
and show their support by selecting Sedona Public Library to receive
their charitable contribution. All online donations during this effort
will go directly to support the Library.
By supporting the Library, you also offer
support to many of the smaller nonprofits who don't have their own
facilities. We build community connections by providing free meeting
space for all nonprofit organizations in Sedona. Over three dozen
local nonprofits representing a very wide variety of community interests
have used Library meeting spaces over the past year.
The mission of nonprofit organizations in
Sedona is to serve the health, safety, welfare, and contentment of Sedona
residents. Providing a place for these organizations to meet and
pursue their missions means the Library helps facilitate the collective
public purpose of all the nonprofit organizations that meet here.
Sedona Public Library's Board of Trustees
and staff are proud of the contributions our library has made to Sedona
and the surrounding communities, since its founding in 1958. As our vision
states, the Library is a special place where the past is honored and
future dreams are nourished.
You rely on our extensive and free collection
of books, DVDs, CDs, magazines, and online resources, and on our computers,
Wi-Fi service, and programs. Can we rely on you to lend your support
on March 20? Donate online at azgives.razoo.com/story/Sedona-Public-Library.
