GIVIN Giving Challenge

A Rare Opportunity

A generous anonymous donor has agreed to match donations to the Amelia S. Givin Free Library’s Endowment Fund through July 31, 2024 – up to $25,000 and perhaps more! 


Your Gift to the Endowment Fund Ensures the Library’s Future
The Amelia Givin Library began with a donation from just one person – Ms. Amelia Steele Givin. Your gift to the library’s endowment fund is a wonderful way to continue the library’s vitality for generations to come. It allows the library board and staff to continue as caretakers of the stunning, historic building – a true treasure – and continue to offer educational, cultural and computer resources to the entire area.

Remember, no donation is too small because it will be DOUBLED!
