The Library shares their appre­ci­a­tion for com­mu­ni­ty mem­bers who sup­port­ed the orga­ni­za­tion’s inclu­siv­i­ty ini­tia­tive dur­ing last mon­th’s Coun­ty Fair Giv­ing Campaign.

The San Juan Island Library is burst­ing with grat­i­tude for the donors who gave to our Inclu­siv­i­ty Ini­tia­tive grant fea­tured at this year’s San Juan Island Com­mu­ni­ty Foun­da­tion Coun­ty Fair Giv­ing Campaign.

More than 50 peo­ple con­tributed dur­ing the four days of the Fair and helped the Library earn a $1,000 match from SJICF. The $6,200 raised will be put to use imme­di­ate­ly by pur­chas­ing a ser­vice to trans­late the online library cat­a­log for Span­ish-speak­ing patrons. Over the next year, remain­ing funds will help host a vari­ety of speak­ers to cel­e­brate the voic­es of BIPOC and LGBTQNIA2S+ writ­ers, his­to­ri­ans, and artists as part of the adult pro­grams offered at the Library.

Spe­cial thanks to SJICF for con­tin­u­ing to pro­vide this won­der­ful oppor­tu­ni­ty for local non­prof­its at the Fair.
