C.C. Mellor Memorial Library is so much more than a place to check out books. It’s a place where our community can connect, grow, learn and thrive.
But that’s only possible with your help.
Every September we celebrate Love Your Library month, during which time all donations will receive a pro-rated portion of a $200,000 match pool. Your contribution will go toward:
- Ensuring our patrons have unfettered access to the internet both inside and outside of our building. We’ll be significantly increasing the number of Chromebooks and hotspots we have available to lend, upgrading and extending our WiFi access and increasing our bandwidth to better serve the community.
- Hosting local author events to support and showcase the talent that exists in our area. These will allow our local authors to gain exposure while also connecting the community to the great work of our neighbors.
- Helping enrich the lives of our youngest learners. CCM is committed to students throughout our community, and this year we’re launching an initiative to give every Woodland Hills student a public library card as part of school registration. Research has shown that students with library cards do better in school, and their new card will allow them to access all of our e-books and online research tools as well as physical materials. We also plan to expand our outreach and partnership possibilities within our schools, and to resume our monthly visits to preschools and daycares in our service area.
We also can’t wait to get back to some of our regular in-person programming for children, teens and adults. Poetry readings, holiday events, the annual book sale, teen groups, makerspace for kids and indoor storytimes are just some of the activities we hope to resume.
But we can’t do any of this without your help. The gift that you offer today will provide the stability we need to continue to serve our community.
Can we count on you?
Becoming a sustaining donor is the easiest and most effective way to support CCM’s work. By setting up a monthly recurring donation, you can ensure that CCM has a reliable source of revenue. Even a donation as small as $10 per month can make a big difference.
Please consider becoming a partner by making a gift or pledge to the C.C. Mellor Memorial Library Annual Appeal. Your gift is a major step in helping us continue to serve our community and to provide the quality services you have come to expect from CCM.
Thank you for your continued support!
