New York Public Library Donation Match
A “summer slide” might sound like fun — but in fact it describes the effect of limited access to educational activity while school’s out. To retain what they have learned during the school year, students need to be challenged by reading over the summer months.
That’s why Summer Reading at NYPL is so essential. Last summer 75,000 children and teenagers participated, and read 286,000 books. This year, we hope to reach even more kids — and we are off to an exciting start!
Your gift today will be doubled up to $100,000 — thanks to an extraordinary matching gift from the Bank of America.
As the Library faces drastic budget cuts that threaten our free services, your contribution today could not be more important.
Please give today and double your impact on Summer Reading at NYPL! Thousands of school children will thank you.
