Library Giving Day
We invite you to participate in Library Giving Day on April 7, 2021!
Please consider making a donation to support Mid-Columbia Libraries during this national, one-day online fundraising event that gives library fans like you a chance to celebrate and enhance the vital services libraries provide for our communities.
This year, we hope to raise funds to support our annual Summer Reading Challenge programs, performances, and giveaways. Young readers who complete the challenge receive a book to take home; however, we are not permitted to give away gifts to program participants. These items are normally generously funded by our Friends of the Library (FOL) groups. Due to the pandemic, the FOL has been unable to host its used book sale fundraisers this past year and are, therefore, unable to provide an annual donation.
Donations can be made via PayPal, debit, or credit card using our secure online option or by cash or check.
All donations are tax-deductible. Checks should be made out to "Friends of Mid-Columbia Libraries" and can be sent or dropped off at:
Friends of Mid-Columbia Libraries

Mid-Columbia Libraries is an intercounty rural library district funded primarily by taxpayer dollars. We are continually seeking ways to expand access to library collections and services and proving to our taxpayers we are an outstanding institution making significant and exceptional contributions to the quality of life of our residents and communities. With your help, we can continue to offer the high quality library programs, such as author visits, concerts, lectures, and more, that community members of all ages have come to expect from their library.
How Far Does My Dollar Go?
Any amount is appreciated, and all donations go towards funding outstanding educational programs and prizes.
