Driving Digital Delivery

Colorado Gives Day is an annual statewide movement to celebrate and increase philanthropy in Colorado through online giving. Community First Foundation and FirstBank encourage all Coloradans to “Give Where You Live” on Tuesday, December 8, 2020.

The Friends of the Library will be participating in the event this year with a campaign focused on increasing the digital offerings of the library. Although the event is focused on one day, you can give to the campaign at any time through
