Alabama Gives Day was a Success for Jefferson Co. Libraries!
Well you did it! Thanks to you, the Jefferson County Library Cooperative
raised $10,773 from 313 unique donors in one day and earned The
People's Choice Award, and placed #5 in the Top 10 Alabama Nonprofits. Wow! It was fantabulous because Alabama really
does give. Your donation will help keep alive our "One county-One library card" system. And thank you Alabama Gives Day for sponsoring this successful event to benefit Alabama nonprofits.
"The library rocks! Especially our Jefferson County libraries!
I've always said, I could live just about anywhere with very little IF I
lived within walking distance of one of our libraries!"
"I love the fact that all Jefferson County libraries are
connected, and that you can go online to locate books, music, and movies
that would not be feasible if you had to go to every library to locate.
The librarians are always friendly and helpful as well."
"My library gives me a place to relax and get a hold of some
great books w/out having to spend my whole paycheck. I love books and
reading and w/out my library, I would have a household of books and be
penniless because I would buy every book I could."
"I love the library. I've used the library's books to diet and
exercise, cook and reorganize, to raise children and put myself to sleep
at night. I used to read books but now I listen to them, sometimes
download them. I'm studying Spanish, too."
