Thank you for a successful Valley Gives Day!

Forbes Library raised $7,905 from 134 generous donors on Valley Gives Day 2017. This exceeded the library’s matching challenge grant of $6,000 from the Friends of Forbes Library. The library was the lucky winner of a $500 “golden ticket” as well, bringing the total for the day to $14,405.

“We are so touched by the outpouring of generosity. The funds raised are so gratefully appreciated and will be used to provide free educational and life-enriching programs for patrons of all ages,” said Lisa Downing, Library Director. Programming at Forbes Library is an integral part of the library’s mission, which serves to support the civic, intellectual, and cultural pursuits of the community. Last year over 20,000 people attended a program at the library. “Our programs bring the community together and encourage curiosity, free inquiry and lifelong learning for all ages and income levels. The funds raised on Valley Gives Day will support a year’s worth of amazing free programs and we couldn’t be more delighted,” said Downing.

Thank you to all the Forbes Library 2017 Valley Gives Day donors!!
