The Countdown to #GivingTuesday Begins!

This year, our Altadena Library Foundation will participate in Giving Tuesday, an international day of giving and philanthropy on Tuesday, November 28. Giving Tuesday donations to the Foundation will directly benefit the development of an interactive, outdoor learning environment and garden surrounding the Main Library building.  This important project will greatly expand the Library's capacity to provide outdoor learning experiences for youth, multi-use outdoor meeting spaces, and serene reading spots surrounded by indigenous flora for patrons and passersby of all ages.
