What is #GivingTuesday?

We have a day for giving thanks.  We have two days for getting deals.  Now we have #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back to your community.  On Tuesday, December 1, 2015, people from around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.

How can you give?  Consider supporting your community library.  From 9:30am to 5:00pm on Tuesday, December 1, 2015 your LaGrange Library Board of Trustees will be at a table in the Library to register people for the Friends of LaGrange Library, taking volunteer applications, and taking donations.  Click here for a printable donor form.

Thank you,
From your Library Staff, Volunteers, Friends, and Board of Trustees
