Big Day of Giving is a 24-hour online giving challenge that brings together the region's nonprofit community to help raise much needed unrestricted funds and shine a spotlight on the work that nonprofits do to make the Sacramento region the place we call home. Big Day of Giving is organized by the Sacramento Region Community Foundation and their affiliates.
Why should I donate?
The Arthur F. Turner Community Library serves a diverse population through programs and services aimed at promoting literacy, inspiring learning, and encouraging community building. Programs include the Summer Reading Program that engages people of all ages through fun presentations and reading challenges. Last summer, the library gave a free book to everyone that signed up for the Summer Reading Program. For many participants, these books were the building blocks for their first home libraries.
This year, the West Sacramento Friends of the Library is raising funds to support the Summer Reading program, as well as others provided throughout the year including story times, the Homework Center, English Conversation Groups, Author Readings, and Book Clubs. Your donation will be used to support these great programs!

When is Big Day of Giving?
Big Day of Giving 2019 will take place during a 24-hour period starting at midnight, Thursday, May 2nd, 2019.
