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.
This year, the West Sacramento Friends of the Library is raising funds to support the return of the library's many amazing IN-PERSON programs and activities, which were largely shuttered during the pandemic, including story times, author events, book clubs, cultural celebrations and more. Help us ensure this library "comeback" is an amazing experience for our entire community.
Your donations will also support the Summer Reading program with reading incentives and prizes! Last summer, the library gave a free book to everyone who signed up. For many participants, these books were the building blocks for their first home libraries.
If you're interested in reading more about the specific programs WSFOL is hoping to fund with Big Day of Giving donations, please refer to www.bigdayofgiving.org/wsfol.
