The Jefferson County Library Foundation (JCLF) is now in its annual Year End Appeal campaign to raise funds and solicit membership. The campaign theme is Make a connection. Visit. Volunteer. Give. and was inspired by this Robert Putnam quote.
"People may go to the library looking mainly for information, but they find each other there – and touts the many ways people connect with the library."
The campaign’s goal is to promote library services and materials, while soliciting volunteers and donations.
Most of you are familiar with public libraries and the materials you find within. But what many people may not realize is the profound impact libraries and their resources have on individuals, relationships, and our community. Every day throughout the ten Jefferson County Public Libraries (JCPL) connections are made through the library experience. And those connections are made possible by the generous donations of time and money which support our public libraries.
Here are some ways you can support Jefferson County Public Library.
If you haven't been in one of our libraries lately, take some time over the holidays to drop in. There's so much happening for people of all ages and lots of ways we can help you chill out and relax, or keep the family busy. Check out or download a book. How about a movie? Drop by one of our LEGO Play & Builds and do some building. Try your hand a 3-D printer in Golden. Whatever your fancy, we probably have it!
While you're there, tell how you made a connection with your library. You can share your thoughts on the interactive display boards in our libraries, or on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram. Use the prompt, "Today at the library I..."
Consider giving of your time. There are lots of ways to give back by volunteering. We are currently in need of volunteers for our Library 2 You program and the Foundation is always seeking volunteer support.
Consider giving on Giving Tuesday, December 8. Choose the Jefferson County Library Foundation - it's easy and a great way to show your support of libraries.
Thank you for support JCPL!
