**May/June 2016 Library Newsletter**




This year, Derby Public Library is participating in The Great Give® 2016, the premiere online giving event for nonprofits in the Greater New Haven region. Starting on May 3, 2016 at 8 AM and lasting until May 4th at 8 PM, your charitable donation will make us eligible for thousands of dollars in grant prizes.

So please visit www.giveGreater.org or www.TheGreatGive.org anytime during this 36-hour giving drive, search for “Derby Public Library” and click “Donate Now.” We will be competing for various matching prizes including most money raised, greatest number of individual donors and greatest number of new donors. Your donation will go a long way towards helping us continue to bring knowledge, resources and technology to the Valley and beyond. Thank you.
