Support the Alexandria Library Foundation on Giving Tuesday by donating to the 50-50 Campaign

Alexandria, VA December 1, 2015 – Giving Tuesday is underway and the Alexandria Library Foundation is seeking donations to support its 50-50 Campaign.

Over the last decade, the Library has lost almost 40% of its materials budget. For every tax-deductible dollar you donate to the Library, the City of Alexandria will match it, up to $50,000. Your donations will be used to enhance our collections by purchasing books, DVDs, ebooks, and more.

Recent projects the Foundation has supported include:

·  Beatley Central Library Children’s Department Upgrade and Mural

·  Duncan Branch Library Garden Benches

·  Beatley Central Library Meeting Room Renovation and Equipment Upgrade

·  Collections including books, digital resources, and periodicals for all locations

·  Library staff development and training
