September is many things: Back to school time, cooler weather time, turning leaves time, and for the second year in a row, September is the time to Love Your Library!
Throughout this month, gifts of up to $500 will be partially matched by the Jack Buncher Foundation as all the libraries in Allegheny County participate in the second annual Love Your Library month. All gifts received in September from all sources will count toward the match.
The Northland Public Library Foundation works hard throughout the year to raise money in support of the Library. From special events to direct mail appeals to food truck fundraisers, the Foundation is dedicated to encouraging community support that enhances the programs and growth of Northland.
It’s easy to see why we love Northland. Why do YOU love Northland? We hear that you love our books – the ones you hold in your hands or those you download. We hear that you love our programs where you learn new skills, “travel” to new places and make new friends. We hear more and more that you love our e-resources like downloadable music. We know these things only scratch the surface of why you and thousands of your neighbors throughout our communities love Northland. With an average of over 23,000 visits through our doors every month, it is clear our patrons love this library! We’re counting on you, and we’re offering many ways to help!
- We invite you to write a check or give online.
- Buy roses at McCandless Floral, 8105 Perry Highway, and they’ll donate $5 to the Library.
- Join us September 23 from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. for our Fall Vendor and Crafter Fair, another Northland fundraiser.
- Get ice cream Sept. 25-30 from Graeter’s Ice Cream, Wexford Plaza, 10610 Perry Hwy, Wexford. They will donate 20 percent back to the Library when you show our flyer.
- Come out for our Tasty Trucks @ Northland food truck fundraisers, usually just twice/month, but this September they’ll be here EVERY Thursday!
- Buy a brick for our Learning Garden capital campaign.
- Sign up for iGive at igive.com and do some online shopping.
- Share our messages on social media and help us spread the word.
We hope you thought of more reasons why you love Northland, and of course, we are so glad you Love YOUR Library! Please give during this special month!
