This year the Chattahoochee Valley Libraries are helping everyone celebrate Georgia Gives Day with fun programs and a way for you to help our Friends of Libraries.
On November 12 & 13, we want all Superheroes to join us for our Superhero Storytimes! We’ll celebrate the superheroes in our own community, we’ll have a great costume contest and maybe a Superhero will join us for the fun!
The fun will take place at the following libraries:
This year the Muscogee County Friends of Libraries has been chosen as one of the “Georgia Gives” non-profit recipients. The Friends actively support library programs and services through membership campaigns, proceeds from the Used Bookstore in the Columbus Public Library and private donations.
Won’t you help the Friends continue to support programs like the Superhero Storytime? All you have to do is visit their “Georgia Gives” webpage by November 13th and make a donation of $10, $25 or more. Every little bit helps!
Whether you have ever given a dime or a minute of time, your life has been affected by the work of a nonprofit. Now, we are creating an opportunity for everyone, in every corner of the state, to support the causes that make Georgia great.
Georgians are generous people. So many of us give to and volunteer in causes and yet, there are many of us who simply are not asked directly to give or to volunteer. Others want to give but are not sure what nonprofit to support, or don’t know exactly what their donation might do to make a difference.
Georgia Gives Day is an initiative that has been co-created by the nonprofit sector itself. It doesn’t support one cause or one locale – it’s all of us in the state’s nonprofit sector pulling together to ask you to stop and consider your life and your community without nonprofits. How much less connected, less vibrant, less interesting and less supported would our communities be without them?
