Foundation News: November 30 is Giving Tuesday, and The Manchester City Library Foundation is excited to participate in this global day of generosity.

The library means so much to so many. To me, the library is a sanctuary, a safe space to explore, dream, think, and escape. I find solace amongst the stacks, but I use the library as a resource and community center, as well. Using technology like wireless printing and participating in free programs like book club, craft projects, and family story time makes me feel so grateful for this staple in our community.

Everyone was hit hard during the pandemic, including our library and staff. I am thankful to everyone working so hard to keep us all safe throughout this time and appreciate all the efforts the library has put together with curbside pickup, digital programming, and reopening both buildings.

Please consider making a gift on November 30 (or at any time) to help support these amazing efforts. Now, you can securely donate online by visiting You can even set up a reoccurring payment to help support the library all year long. I know my gifts are making an impact; I see it when I walk through the doors and read the newsletter about all the inspiring things happening at Manchester City Library.

I appreciate your consideration and Happy Thanksgiving,
Lisa Sullivan
Manchester City Library Foundation Board Member
