The only way to have a friend is to be one. —Ralph Waldo Emerson
Your gift to the Friends 2013 Campaign for Excellence will help Monroe County Public Library reach new audiences with early literacy outreach programs, and will extend opportunities to everyone in our community to read, learn, discover, and create. Please help us raise $40,000 to create a special place for babies and caregivers in the Learn and Play Space, introduce digital creativity tools to children and families, support Math Homework Help, and invest in digital content to support school assignments. Your generosity will make a difference! Thank you for all you do to support Monroe County Public Library.
