Why Support Your Local Library?

by Jesse M

There are many ways you can show your support for your library. You can encourage your local officials to support libraries in your community. You can join your local Friends of the Library group, or volunteer at your neighborhood branch. You can also donate directly to the Dekalb Library Foundation, purchase materials for the collection, donate an engraved brick (through November 1st), or by getting a collector series, limited-edition Pete the Cat library card.

You can also help out by signing up for the Literacy Alliance of Metro Atlanta’s 5K Walk/Run for Literacy; choose the DeKalb Library Foundation as the organization to benefit from your registration.
