Library Giving Day

On April 10, public libraries across the nation are joining together for a one day giving event. Library Giving Day is a chance for community members, library users, and book fanatics to come together in support of public libraries.

The Ocean Shores Library enriches the lives of everyone in our community, regardless of age or economic circumstance. It provides innovative programs that help achieve service priorities, including:

• Connecting to the online world

• Programming for children, teens and adults

• Books and resources

• Provide a comfortable place to visit

• Promote lifelong learning

• Technology resources for library patrons

Donating to The Ocean Shores Library is a way for people who believe in the power of public libraries to change lives to help keep the Library strong.

You can show your love for your Ocean Shores Public Library by making a monetary donation in-person on Library Giving Day, April 10.
