Kids' Library Annual Fundraiser

A Very Special Request

Grand Total: $8,983 donated! Thank you for helping to make discovery possible at your community libraries! 

Thank you to everyone who donated to help the libraries purchase Discovery activity tables for the children’s areas!

2023 Goal: $8,600. Donations received beyond the $8,600 goal may be used to enhance the CMBCL Youth Services collection or areas of the libraries.

The goal of the 2023 Kids’ Library Fundraiser was very special. We asked for your help to add Discovery Activity Tables to the Youth Services areas at Cedar Mill and Bethany Community Libraries.

Activity tables are a great way to engage with play-based learning at the libraries. They provide interactive spaces where young children can practice fine-motor children's activity table skills, social-emotional learning, problem solving, and group play. Discovery Tables are self-contained activity centers with distinct play surfaces and a modular design. They offer flexibility, sturdy construction, storage, and unique play experiences for our young learners. These tables will allow us to update our kids’ areas at both libraries and highlight the importance of early literacy skills through play.

CMBCL will purchase two tables, one for each location and your gifts helped make these additions possible!

You may also donate at the front desk at Cedar Mill Library or Bethany Library.

To donate by check, please make your check payable to Cedar Mill Community Library and don’t forget to write “Kids’ Fundraiser” in the memo. Deliver or mail your check to 1080 SW Saltzman RD Portland, OR 97229 or drop your gift off at either Cedar Mill Library or Bethany Library.

As a 501(c)(3) non-profit, the Cedar Mill Community Library Association depends on the support of community members like you. By making your gift, you make it possible for Cedar Mill and Bethany Community Libraries to offer library services in unincorporated Washington County and beyond.
