First conceived in a conference room in Denver Public Library, National Library Giving Day debuted across the country in 2019, with over 100 libraries across the US participating. We hear from three in Minnesota who participated - three very differently sized organizations - about what they learned from the experience. Additionally, we will look at how your library can use the tools and momentum that this day has available to bring in funds for your library and bring your community together.
