Here at the Normal Public Library, we are continually inspired by the many ways people in our community support our mission. This means so much to us! Supporting the library's work and vision helps raise awareness and make an impact in our community and in the lives of all of our patrons. Join us again this year as we boldly move forward! You make the community the heart of your library.

Celebrate your role in our growing library community. No matter where you live and work, YOU play an important role in our community. Use your voice - be an ambassador for the movement by focusing your messaging on celebrating generosity, saying thanks, and celebrating the good. Advocate for the Normal Public Library and know that we appreciate you!

This year, all donations from #GivingTuesday will help to fund immersive virtual reality experiences that will transport patrons of all ages to different countries, historical sites, and cities aided by the purchase of Google Expedition kits.
