Celebrate Your Library on Library Giving Day

Celebrate Your Library on Library Giving Day

written by Shelley O’Brien, Executive Director of the Johnson County Library Foundation

This Wednesday, April 3rd is Library Giving Day. Library lovers from across the country will be making donations to their favorite public libraries to enhance services and support library collections.

At the Johnson County Library, we are focusing this Library Giving Day on our 15th library branch – the e-Library. There are so many wonderful offerings on your home or library computer, including:

  • Libby for e-books and e-audiobooks.
  • Kanopy offers thousands of movie and documentary choices.
  • E-magazines with Flipster and e-newspapers like the KC Star and the Washington Post.
  • Udemy to learn about computer programs, project management and so much more.
  • Brainfuse for students taking standardized tests or in need of one-on-one tutoring.
  • Rosetta Stone and Mango to learn new languages.
  • The Great Courses, Kahn Academy, and Universal Express for lifelong learners.
  • And much, much more.

Your support of the Johnson County Library makes a difference because these e-resources are amazing. Brainfuse is a great example. Students from Johnson County can get one-on-one tutoring to complete their homework or get ready for the ACT or SAT. Brainfuse is easy to access and a great way for families to get high-quality resources for no-additional costs.

These digital programs, like Brainfuse, are often supported by community members like you. They are bonus items the Library is able to purchase for everyone in Johnson County thanks to donations from the community.

Please consider making a donation to support the Johnson County Library Foundation this Wednesday during Library Giving Day to support the e-Library. All amounts are welcome!
