Library raising funds for inclusivity initiative
Posted August 11, 2022 at 10:03 am by San Juan Update
The San Juan Island Library shares the details of their County Fair fundraising project.
The SJI Library is developing new ways to celebrate a variety of voices in our community, and you can help. While you’re enjoying the exciting return of the San Juan County Fair you’ll have an opportunity to support the San Juan Island Library’s grant featured in the popular San Juan Island Community Foundation County Fair Giving Campaign.
Your support of this year’s fair grant will help the Library launch programming inviting BIPOC and LGBTQNIA2S+ writers, historians, and artists to share their stories. A portion of the funds will also purchase a service to translate the online library catalog for Spanish-speaking patrons.
The total goal is $8,000, and SJICF will match the first $1,000 donated. To donate, simply stop by the SJICF booth during the four days of the fair Aug. 17 through 20. You can also donate securely online at sjicf.org. All donations must be received during the four days of the fair, made payable to SJICF, and designated for the library grant to qualify for the match.
Thank you for your support of the library’s Inclusivity Initiative. We look forward to seeing you at the fair!
You can support the San Juan Update by doing business with our loyal advertisers, and by making a one-time contribution or a recurring donation.
