FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
ONLINE DAY OF GIVING ESTABLISHED TO SUPPORT THE MONTEREY PUBLIC LIBRARY CALIFORNIA HISTORY ROOM & ARCHIVES FUND

The Friends of the Monterey Public Library (MPL) is raising funds for the Monterey Public Library California History Room & Archives Fund through an inaugural Library Giving Day campaign. This one-day online fundraising event will occur on Wednesday, April 10, 2019 and will encourage patrons and Library lovers to make a gift to their individual library system.

The Friends of MPL fundraising campaign will run from April 1 to April 30, 2019, to help sustain a Monterey treasure. The California History Room & Archives preserves Monterey’s memory with a unique collection of visual, written and audible materials created by and about residents of the Monterey area, both past and present. Collecting, preserving, and providing access to this valuable collection comes at a cost. It requires support from generous donors.

Now through April 10, gifts will be DOUBLED by an anonymous friend – dollar for dollar, up to a total of $2,500. It will go twice as far for the Friend’s History Room & Archives Fund.

GIVE $25 or more by April 10 – Pick-up a free Monterey Public Library grocery tote at the Library while supplies last.
