Don’t hesitate to soar above and beyond if you’re able to give more to support the Library you love! Consider that: 

$100 connects one family to the internet at home for an entire school year, making possible the completion of online homework assignments, access to live tutoring, and exploration of college and job opportunities 

$250 teaches 65 brand new parents about the importance of reading to their newborns and gives each baby their first book 

$500 starts home libraries for 116 children living in poverty (extra important because being surrounded by books at home is the single most important predictor of student performance) 

$1,000 grants a full scholarship to one adult earning their high school diploma and career certificate from the Library’s Career Online High School, giving them a second chance to build a better life for their family. 
(In case all this impact isn’t enough for you, a one-time gift of $1,000 to the Friends today makes you a member of the Friends for life!)
