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 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!
