A NOTE ON CORONAVIRUS COVID-19
The health and safety of our patrons is a primary concern for the Library Foundation. Therefore, in response to the current concerns about the COVID-19 virus, the Library Foundation has decided to cancel all and Branch Out events until further notice. We will continue to follow the recommendations from the Louisville Metro Department of Public Health and Wellness as well as state public health officials and will continue to keep you informed as we make decisions concerning future events.

SUPPORT LFPL SUMMER READING
Help the Library Foundation raise $100,000 to provide books to children and teens. At an average cost of $2 per book, every donation makes a BIG impact!
$10 = 5 books
$100 = 50 books
$1,000 = 500 books
$10,000 = 5,000 books
Due to COVID-19 and the temporary closure of our libraries, access to resources such as books and programs could be a challenge this summer, especially for families who lack digital resources. To ensure Louisville’s children and teens have books in their hands, the Library Foundation is raising $100,000 to give away at least 50,000 books as part of LFPL’s Summer Reading program.
If you’d like to help the youth of our community avoid the “summer slide” loss of learning – so important this year when all of our youth missed months of valuable in-school time – we encourage you to donate today.
Designate Summer Reading 2020 in the gift designation box.
DOLLARS RAISED AS OF 5/29/2020
$48,500 = 24,500 Books. Help us Reach $100,000 and 50,000 Books!

Public dollars from state and local governments cover only a portion of the library’s expenses. It takes community members – like you – to add a margin of excellence that the community wants and needs in a library system.
