The San Juan Island Library is bursting with gratitude for the donors who gave to our Inclusivity Initiative grant featured at this year’s San Juan Island Community Foundation fair booth. More than 50 people contributed during the four days of the fair and helped the Library earn a $1,000 match from SJICF! The $6,200 raised will be put to use immediately by purchasing a service to translate the online library catalog for Spanish-speaking patrons. Over the next year, remaining funds will help host a variety of speakers to celebrate the voices of BIPOC and LGBTQNIA2S+ writers, historians, and artists as part of the Adult Programs offered at the Library.
Special thanks to SJICF for continuing to provide this wonderful opportunity for local nonprofits at the fair! For more information about your library, visit www.sjlib.org.
