BENEFITING: Tompkins County Public Library Foundation, Inc.
I have always loved books. I can't remember a time before reading and exploring the world through words. I have always loved libraries and was very excited to join this creative fundraiser for the Tompkins County Public Library. There are simply too many good things about TCPL for me write about them all, I'd be creating an essay, so here are three things that make TCPL stand out as a group to support.
1. Free interlibrary loans! As someone with a taste for unusual books, I love knowing that TCPL will help me get a book from across the country if another library has it.
2. A free, welcoming space Downtown! Ithaca winters can be harsh, so knowing that if I am Downtown and need to warm up, I can grab a book and head for the reading room is comforting. It also provides a safe place for kids and teens to quietly hang out.
3. Excellent selection! Every time I come into the library, I'll find something new and wonderful to read. (Usually a whole stack of them!) Maintaining a modern and diverse collection is pricey, so that's where this fundraiser really helps.
If those seem like good resources for our library, please donate a little money towards this fundraiser.
