November has been designated as “National Gratitude Month”.  From the Community Library of Allegheny Valley, we say a heartfelt “thank you”.  Our thank you is a time to shift our thoughts to how much we appreciate the support provided by the community through the year.  November 28 is also a big day for nonprofits in Pittsburgh.  It is a day when collectively the community has the opportunity to express gratitude and support for all of the programs and services that make this region strong.  Pittsburgh Magazine in partnership with The Pittsburgh Foundation is introducing GiveBig Pittsburgh. You are invited to participate in this expression of gratitude for the Community Library of Allegheny Valley – there are four simple ways:

  • Respond to our year-end mailing
  • Visit the Library and show your support in person.
  • Click on the Library website donate button
  • Or go to the GiveBig Pittsburgh website    https://www.givebigpittsburgh.com
