Raise the Region 2018

Raise the Region is a 30-hour online only giving event that helps nonprofit organizations in our area.  Your gift is stretched by corporate donors.  Spread the word!

What will your donation do for the community?

$25: Pays for 30 “Science Sacks” – a weekly take-home project for Summer Reading – to keep school-age kids busy learning and thinking over Summer. Kids’ programs are always free – no library card needed.

$50: Pays for one month of Internet access for up to 270 one-hour sessions on public computers. (Only 50% of US households have computers.) No library card needed.  

$100:  Pays for one month of Internet access for our Mobile Hotspot lending program – That means that up to 20 people, who do not have Internet at home, can borrow it from the library. With so many resources and applications only available through the Internet, it’s a necessity, not a nicety.

$500: Pays for our annual subscription to an online job-readiness program called “Learning Express” that provides self-paced training, tutoring in job-seeking skills, GED test preparation, certificates of proficiency in computer skills. No library card needed. Everyone welcome.

$1,000: Ensures that anyone in our community, whether they have a library card or not, can read the very best daily national newspapers for free.  The Library absorbs the cost of the expensive subscriptions. An informed community is a healthier, stronger community.
