Library Giving Day

Thanks to supporters like you we were able to raise over $28,000 on Library Giving Day 2021. THANK YOU!

Thanks to your support, the match from an anonymous donor and the Anne Arundel County Public Library Foundation’s Board of Directors, we were able to raise over $28,000 which will support one of our signature programs, Summer @ Your Library. This program:

  • encourages regular reading at all age levels,
  • prevents “summer slide” and
  • impacts the achievement gap by preparing children for the upcoming school year.


April 7, 2021 - AACPL is part of a coalition of libraries joining forces to raise funds through Library Giving Day. This one day of giving reminds us that libraries serve as a cornerstone for our communities. In addition to well-loved books, your library offers innovative programs services that promote lifelong learning, connects cardholders to technology, and advance knowledge.

Your gift will directly support one of our signature programs – Summer @ Your Library. For over 40 years, the library has encouraged readers of all ages to read and visit their library during the summer months. Historically, the library hosts over 1,300 programs and serves more than 55,000 customers in all of our 16 branches during Summer @ Your Library. This program encourages regular reading at all age levels and prevents "Summer Slide", helping children be more prepared for the school year.

Thanks to your contributions, we've met our match! Help us exceed our goal!
