We are so appreciative of those who logged onto our fundraising site and were able to make a donation to The Public Libraries in Jefferson County yesterday.

However, if you haven’t had the chance to log onto the site and make a donation yet, there is still time to do so! We invite you to visit http://www.razoo.com/story/The-Great-Give-2015 and consider making a donation to The Public Libraries in Jefferson County today.

Jefferson County residents are encouraged to post a “selfie” with their favorite book or their library card when they choose to donate to the campaign, along with a caption explaining why they are a “fan” of their local library. To promote the campaign on social media sites, the 40 Public Libraries in Jefferson County will be utilizing a hashtag- #TheGreatGive.

Our goal for #TheGreatGive campaign is to raise $15,000 over the span of two days, Tuesday, May 12 and Wednesday, May 13.

The Public Libraries In Jefferson County’s campaign will raise money for cooperative services that link all of our 40 libraries under one card. You can donate by logging onto http://www.razoo.com/story/The-Great-Give-2015.
