Neighbor, Can You Spare a Dollar? Fundraising for the Sunset Park Library

Help the Sunset Park Library reach its $5000 goal during the three-month fund-raising event for the Brooklyn Public Libraries. The Sunset Park Library has been "adopted" by the Revson Foundation, but I'm not sure if that means they'll match the amount raised or make sure we get to $5000. Either way, spare a dime or a dollar for our library. And if you do donate, make sure to specify it's for the Sunset Park Branch! See the information from the website below:

From March 1-May 31, donate to your local library and support your community. BPL's three-month Support Our Shelves campaign will help Brooklyn Public Library continue providing books, programs and services to all of our communities.

When you contribute, you decide which library to support, and how much to give. So please be shelf-ish!

Every donation, from one dollar to a thousand dollars, counts! And each donation helps us reach our goal of $300,000 to provide the materials that libraries around Brooklyn need.

When you donate $50 or more, we will send you a bookplate that you can affix to a book of your choosing by seeing the librarian in your local branch.

Donate online, or call 718.230.2738.

Because all the reasons you use your library are all the reasons to give.

If you have any questions please call 718.230.2738 or email supportourshelves@brooklynpubliclibrary.org.

Thanks for encouraging people to donate to the Sunset Park Branch. As a librarian and a Sunset Park resident, I know everyone's money will be put to good use!
