Colorado Gives Day is Tuesday, December 6th – 24 Hours to Give Where You Live!

Dear Members of the Friends of the Aurora Public Library –

The Board of the Friends of the Aurora Public Library would like all of you to know that the Friends will be participating for the fifth consecutive year in COLORADO GIVES DAY ON TUESDAY, DECEMBER 6, 2016. This one day is very important for the Friends as last year we raised nearly $1,500 in only 24 hours! This helps us achieve our mission of providing direct financial donations for the great programs and services of the Aurora Public Libraries! Last year with our support, the Library hosted over 1,100 free programs with over 28,000 attendees. In addition, Library staff participated in over 700 community events reaching over 49,000 community members – all with the help of financial support from you and the Friends of the Aurora Public Library. These are programs that would not be possible without your help and are outlined in the Library’s quarterly Program Guide – The Resource!

Last year, over $28.5 million was raised for nearly 1,900 non-profits just like ours on COLORADO GIVES DAY – 24 HOURS TO GIVE WHERE YOU LIVE. Every donation goes further – this year there is also a $1 million Incentive Fund that we will receive a share of – sponsored by Community First Foundation and FirstBank.

This is a very important day for non-profit organizations throughout Colorado – especially small ones like the Friends of the Aurora Public Library!

Each participating non-profit must complete a comprehensive profile that describes their mission and how they accomplish it. It includes information about all aspects of each non-profit. You can find our extensive profile at

Any interested donors can make online donations using a credit card through a secure website sponsored by Community First Foundation. Donations can be prescheduled NOW so that they will occur on Colorado Gives Day. Don’t procrastinate – schedule your donation now! If you prefer to make your donation in person, please place it in the DONATION BOX located at the front registers of The Book Outlet during our regular business hours. Any amount helps!

Thank you for your ongoing membership, your patronage at The Book Outlet and your continued support in helping us accomplish our important mission!
