The Big Day of Giving (BDOG) is coming on Thursday, May 2. At this time the region’s non-profit organizations work together to fundraiser for their communities. This year the Winters Friends of the Library (WFoL) is focusing on hoe they support, connect and engage the community to help strengthen it. WFoL provides programs that allow Winters families and library patrons an outlet to engage with others. Some of these ongoing programs include Books for Babies, Little Free Libraries, Summer Gazebo Concerts, Winters Shakespeare Workshop, Holiday Festival, Author Talks and more. This year’s WFoL goal is to raise $30,000in 24 hours on BDOG. It’s not necessary to wait until May 2. Donations can be scheduled now at the dedicated link https://www.bigdayofgiving.org/wfol. Or visit the library on May 2 to donate from 8 a.m.-8 p.m. As well as programs, this year’s donations will go toward specific requests made by the Yolo County Library. The Margaret Parsons Room will be going through a revamp this summer but the revamps do not include updating technology in the room or supplies to house it. WFoL will be assisting with that using Big DOG funds. Also, WFoL has been asked this year to fund efforts to refresh the family area, including replacing supplies and interactive elements. WFoL will be participating in the Bedtime Story Challenge from 7-8 p.m. on May 2. They will be competing for a prize for most NEW donors during this hour. Special guest readers Esther Villalobos, Laurie Helm, and Greg Moffit will read bedtime stories at the library at that time. There will also be an event called “Support, Connect, Engage” at Berryessa Gap Tasting Room on Main Street from 6:30-8 p.m. Visit with WFoL members at the event. Appetizers and wine will be served. There will also be an opportunity to find out how to get involved with WFoL. To RSVP email firstname.lastname@example.org or call/text 415-416-0635. ]]>
