Support your library on Giving Tuesday

This Giving Tuesday, help us reach our goal of raising $1,000 for the KFPL Endowment Fund by the end of the year to have it matched by the Community Foundation!

The Endowment Fund enhances collections, services and programs for the thousands of people who rely on KFPL every day. Lending books and library materials, providing access to the internet, offering programs that promote literacy and a love of reading, connecting people in person and virtually — our goal is to make a difference in the lives of our residents and in our communities. The Endowment Fund is a critical part of making that happen.

Your donation will help us further our impact while Giving Tuesday unleashes the power of generosity to transform communities and the world.
