Giving Tuesday is a global day of giving on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving each year.

In light of the large quantities of money spent on Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday is an opportunity to kick off the holiday season with an act of charity. One of the best ways to get involved is in your own community.

Donations given here on our website will be used to support the Carson City Library. (You can also donate in person or by mail.) There are a variety of projects and items to donate or donate toward. And any amount or type of giving helps, from volunteering and book donations to contributions for new shelving, seating, technology or children’s programs.

Keep in mind, many of the amazing things you see at the library today are due to generous donations through the Friends.

You can also choose to give by shopping on and selecting an organization of your choice, including Friends of the Carson City Library.

Give now and share your involvement online with the hashtag, #GivingTuesday.
