We do like to name things: Black Friday, Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday. I appreciate the concept of Giving Tuesday because it gives us a specific reminder at a very hectic time of the year. Often the end of the year comes and I think, I meant to give to this or that local cause, and I probably have a mail or e-mail appeal lingering somewhere, but I just never got around to it. Well, today’s the day. Break out your checkbook or credit card and support the institutions and organizations you believe make our community better and stronger. Do it today.
And, when you do, please consider a gift to the Iowa City Public Library Friends Foundation. You can find all you need to give online or send a check here. The Library is one of the most heavily used cultural, educational, and recreational institutions you will ever find, serving people of all ages, abilities and cultures. Gifts to the Foundation support the purchase of library materials, our important Summer Reading Program, building improvement projects, entertaining and informing programs for young and old, outreach to people who can’t get to the library, and making sure technology is accessible to all.
Watch for The Window newsletter in your mailbox in early December with great stories about the Foundation and a milestone they are celebrating.
Thank you for your support of a local organization that touches so many people in a positive way.
