Tomorrow, we invite you to join people around the world and unleash your generosity for #GivingTuesday. There’s no doubt that this year has been challenging, to put it mildly. Strong public libraries are critical to ensure that everyone in our community has access to the resources they need to thrive. Your support makes this work happen.

Below are five ways you can help on #GivingTuesday:
1. Give to the Library Foundation!
As we approach the end of the year, your support can help us meet our goals for supporting key Library programs like SJ Access, Career Online High School, and the Coding5K Challenge. If you've been considering a donation, #GivingTuesday is the perfect occasion! Learn more and give at
2. Donate your used laptop!
In partnership with HP Inc., SJPL and the Foundation are hosting a device donation drive for students, families, and others in need. Starting tomorrow through Jan. 9, 2021, you can drop off your used laptop, tablet, or other device at any SJPL Express Pickup location from 1-6pm and get a receipt for a tax-deductible donation.
