Support the Foundation’s Work on Giving Tuesday



The Downers Grove Public Library Foundation is participating in this year’s Giving Tuesday global generosity movement on November 30th.

Gifts from donors like you helped the Foundation fund the Library’s purchase of extraordinary gifts – including: the purchase of EnChroma color blind glasses as part of the Anything Emporium (the Library’s collection of non-book items available for checkout) making the library’s offerings more accessible; Satellite Stacks, rotating collections of large-print and audio materials at home at senior living centers throughout Downers Grove, e-books and downloadable audiobooks to help serve our community during an uncertain time, along with the ongoing acquisition of original fine art.

Your donation on this Giving Tuesday will enable the Foundation to continue providing extraordinary enhancements beyond taxpayer support to the Library’s collections and offerings. It only takes a few clicks to make a lasting impact on the library you love.

The Foundation has high ambitions for the fiscal year ahead – from supporting the library’s Equity, Diversity and Inclusion initiatives, to helping expand programming offerings and making the Library’s public art offerings more accessible. Your #GivingTuesday donation can help make these goals become reality.
