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, which 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 other programs and activities provided throughout the year including story times, the Homework Center, English Conversation Groups, Author Readings, and Book Clubs. Another goal is to expand the library’s collection further, and in more languages of reading preference. Your donation will makes a difference!
